FISHING For more than 500 years, the Port of St. John’s has been a vital service centre for the fishing industry, and today is no different. With unbeatable access to prime fishing grounds and a highly skilled workforce, our port is home to thriving piers that see millions of pounds of fish handled each year, and more than 500 small commercial vessels arriving annually. We are pleased to be able to offer the fishing industry highly efficient dockside capabilities, including the recent completion of the $5.0M Pier 20 project, as well as access to a diverse supply and service network that enables quick turnarounds. The port remains one of the largest fish-handling ports in Newfoundland and Labrador and is connected to a vast supply and service network offering: • Highly skilled and qualified labour force • Close proximity to prime fishing grounds • Access to a diverse supply and service community • Fast and efficient discharge of landings 22
