Quinlan Brothers Ltd. stated in a news release the company has worked with snow crab producers since the fire to ensure fish harvesters have been serviced as normal. The company also says other companies have helped provide employment to “practically all” of the 700 workers who were employed at the Bay de Verde plant. Quinlan Brothers says remediation at the Bay de Verde site has been completed, along with geotechnical surveys and infrastructure assessments, and foundations and site work could begin in the next 10 days.
