This coming Friday and Saturday, November 18th & 19th, will mark the return of the North Atlantic Fish & Workboat Show to the Mile One Centre in St. John’s, NL.
This all-encompassing commercial marine event features boats, marine services and equipment, supplies services and safety gear for commercial fishermen and other workboats.
This year, the North Atlantic Fish & Workboat Show is celebrating its 5th anniversary edition. As part of the event, deserving individuals will be inducted into the Atlantic Canada Marine Industries Hall of Fame.
These awards pay a lasting tribute to those who have made valuable contributions in any sector of the marine industry and are given in three categories. The Mariner category recognizes individuals who work or have worked on the water in any marine industry. The Processor category recognizes individuals involved in the business of processing, from line workers to company owners. The Builder category recognizes those who have made contributions without having directly participated.
Congratulations to the 2016 inductees:
- RUFUS GENGE from Anchor Point (Mariner)
- PATRICK QUINLAN from Bay de Verde (Processor)
- FREDERICK JACKSON from Whiteway, Trinity Bay (Builder)
