    if they take to insurance money and build a new plant in bonavista,,the peaple of catalina,port union,melrose little catalina should block highway 230 and not allow any fish product to move anywhere. That's my opinion Why not take the money fix the more modern port union plant and shut down the bonavista plant.Either that our sell port union to another company,and oci can go to where ever they like

    fish stocks belong to the people of Canada, not just the 'processors'. any changes in the fishing industry have to accomodate everyone as well as can be...fish harvesters, plant workers, and the merchants... profit is not a dirty word but it can not be the last word.

    "the market demand is in Asia, where they want it in the whole format." Then let Asia buy it somewhere else. It gets processed here or it stays in the water.

    Yes, it's high time we discussed saving the fishery. And while we're all at the table, how about we discuss an allegedly open barn door? Some have said they saw several horses take off out of the barn over the last 25 years, but I'm convinced that if we just get together and discuss what it might take to implement a sound strategy to implement the eventual repositioning of that door into a more closed, or less open, position .....Oh. I've just been informed that the last horse was found dead two years ago. Let's turn the barn into a 'world class' horse museum...tourists love that stuff.

    It is a misnomer for the processors to call themselves the "Association of Seafood Producers" (ASP). ++++++ They 'process' nothing and 'produce' little or nothing, and want to 'produce' even less. ++++++ They just want to 'buy' and 'ship". ++++ So they should change their name to the "Association of Seafood Shippers" (or 'ASS', for short).

      Now Maurice, Clyde Jackman was issued with an MOU when he was minister of fisheries. That MOU called for reduced plants and fishers. He didn't have the gonads to implement it simply because it put his re-election on the line. Today just one boat can cach the equivalent of 200 or more inshore fishermen. The bays are full of 'em. Those who got into the fishery post moratorium shouldn't be bought out and a lot more of 'em have to go. I don't like it but them's the facts.

    Martin Sullivan is a ceo .for Ocean Choice who pays him. The inshore will die if they have their way.

    Maybe it is time for government to step back and let the fishery choose it's own future.

    Remember what happened the last time plant owners got greedy. Can you say MORATORIUM.
