Crab Fishermen Reach New Price Deal, End Strike


ST.JOHNS, N.L. — Newfoundland and Labrador fisherman are racing to catch crab following a deal that ended a weekend strike over pricing, reports CBC News.

Crab fishermen were ready to put their boats back in the water after The Fish, Food and Allied Workers (FFAW) union negotiated a deal with seafood producers, increasing the price of crab by 17 cents, to $2 per pound.

“We agreed to set up a joint working group to try and improve on our price setting structure to try and avoid these kinds of disputes in the future,” said Earle McCurdy, FFAW president.

The deal expires May 4; crab season runs until July 31. [CBC News]
