Setting a New Course

Phase II The Canadian Council of Professional Fish Harvesters is pleased to release Setting a New Course, the first major study to deal exclusively with the economics and human resources needs of Canada’s independent owner-operator fishery. This is also the first time that a major study of this nature has been carried out on behalf of the owner-operator industry itself. Never before has the owner-operator fishery been examined in such detail or from this perspective. This study is long overdue. The owner-operator fishery is the largest and most productive sector of the fish harvesting industry; it lands the most valued products and provides the economic foundation for more than 1300 coastal and inland communities in Canada, and deserves special attention. A CD is also available
