Fleet Separation

Today in the House of Assembly NL NDP leader Lorraine Michael (MHA, Signal Hill – Quidi Vidi) continued to press government on fisheries issues.

“The owner-operator and fleet separation policies are essential to our inshore fish harvesters,” stated Michael. “Will this government be introducing a motion or resolution that states unequivocally that we support these two policies?”


MR. SPEAKER: The hon. the Leader of the Third Party.

SOME HON. MEMBERS: Hear, hear!

MS MICHAEL: Thank you very much, Mr. Speaker.


NDP MHA Christopher Mitchelmore is asking the provincial fisheries, Darin King, to clarify the province’s position on fleet separation.

The minister was at the Boston International Seafood Show earlier this week and met with his federal counterpart Keith Ashfield.
