Baffin Fisheries has begun distribution of turbot and shrimp in Nunavut, in partnership with Pangnirtung Fisheries Ltd., and with support from the Canada Surplus Food Rescue Program. Today (Wed. Oct. 7) we landed 10,000 pounds of shrimp in Iqaluit directly from the company’s largest vessel, the offshore trawler FV Sivulliq. Chairman David Alexander coordinated logistics of the offload, including operating a boat himself to take most of the shrimp ashore. From the beach the shrimp was transferred to the HTA freezer.

 David Alexander is coordinating delivery to other communities, including non-BFC communities. The aim of the program is to prioritize those in need. Amaruq HTA will coordinate delivery in Iqaluit, also prioritizing families in need. Other HTAs will coordinate in their communities. We’re also working on plans to deliver free turbot to as many communities as possible in the Qikiqtani Region.
