A little shrimp goes a long way.
We know jobs are important. Especially these days.
The year-round offshore shrimp fishery doesn't focus on short-term, seasonal work. We employ hundreds of Newfoundlanders and Labradorians from 116 communities in full time, well-paying jobs.
For every tonne of shrimp, our labour income impacts are 24% higher than seasonal inshore harvesters.
We directly support over a thousand onshore workers across the province, who add even more value to our highly competitive industry.
We pioneered and built this fishery for the future of our province. Because we know long-term, stable work can help keep our youth home and proudly working in a successful fishery that is part of our heritage.
