FFAW-Unifor strongly objects to DFO’s decision to move forward with drafting an unachievable rebuilding plan for northern shrimp at a meeting today in Montreal.

FFAW-Unifor fully supports the need for a rebuilding plan for this crucial resource, however the current method is unfeasible and must be rethought.
