Shrimp Quotas: DFO's Same-ol-same-ol
It strikes me that the Co-op idea exercised by Fogo Island and the Labrador Shrimp Co is not a bad idea for community sustainability. Could be an answer to some of our community woes. But then I hear of things like the present DFO minister Gail Shea taking quotas from elsewhere and giving them to her own riding. A riding which has no shrimp processing ability or history... Sadly I guess this is a glimpse of the reality of the Newfoundland and Labrador ocean resources. Traded, stolen and picked clean.
