The Canadian Council of Professional Fish Harvesters (CCPFH) has launched a new blog that gives fish harvesters a place to interact with each other and to share opinions and ideas. The blog can be found on the CCPFH’s new website at www.FishHarvestersPecheurs.ca or directly at www.FishHarvestersPecheurs.ca/blog.
“We want to create an open dialogue between harvesters”, said Earle McCurdy, President of the CCPFH. “Fish harvesters are spread-out throughout Canada which makes communication a challenge, and though they may have catch different species and have different methods to harvest, they still share many common issues and goals. This is a way for us to help them connect and unite.”
The blog will feature popular subjects and be renewed with new content on a regular basis. It is open to all and is a place for the free flowing exchange of ideas and opinions.
The blog is part of a renewed effort by the CCPFH to create dialogue in the industry. Other initiatives include the new website, the addition of social media including Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn and will soon have its own videos on YouTube.
“CCPFH wants to make it easy for fish harvesters to get industry related information and to connect with each other", said John Sutcliffe. "We're exploring new ways to reach out to our members and to make information readily available to them in as many ways as possible."
