Prince Edward Island Fishermen’s Association 

News Release 

 

The Prince Edward Island Fishermen’s Association (PEIFA) is closely monitoring the issues surrounding the COVID – 19 virus and the potential impacts on the fishing sector.

The current situation is very fluid and there is much speculation on what may transpire over the next six weeks.

The association is monitoring the situation on a daily basis and will be informing the membership through internal channels of any concrete decisions that have been made concerning the upcoming fishing season. There have been no decisions to date.

We are experiencing an unprecedented situation that affects many industries other than the seafood sector. The PEIFA is mindful of the those that are impacted by these developments wherever they may live.

The PEIFA will continue our ongoing dialogue with seafood industry representatives, the Provincial and Federal governments and any other sources of timely and factual information. 

Although many scenarios are being discussed on social media, the PEIFA will inform our membership of important decisions as they become available. 

 

For more information please contact PEIFA President Bobby Jenkins at (902) 969-8995 or Executive Director Ian MacPherson at (902) 394-0457.
