N.L. Government Hands Out $2 Million in Fisheries Project Funding

Newfoundland and Labrador’s Seafood Innovation and Transition Program has provided over $2 million to support innovation and development for 37 initiatives throughout the province’s seafood industry.

The program was announced in Budget 2016 with a focus on helping the seafood industry transition to a groundfish-based fishery.
