Minister Hutchings said, "We've been quite active in terms of the plan over the past year or so. After we completed our scientific work we went back and forth with the industry players who wanted some tweaks in the guidelines and we did that.
The Honourable Keith Hutchings, the provincial Minister of Fisheries and Aquaculture said that a Bay Management Plan should be place by the end of the year.
Halse said that the fish that will be depopulated represents less than three percent of all of Cooke's fish in Atlantic Canada and Maine.
However, the company was informed recently that the rest of the several hundred thousand fish would have to be depopulated as well and will need to be sent to a rendering facility.

"This government is very supportive of the aquaculture industry, and we're willing to sit down with the players to get this plan in place in moving the industry forward."
Following strict protocols, and the direction of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), the company depopulated two cages at the site hoping that the rest of the fish would escape the problem.
Halse said that the depopulation order by the CFIA means that the company has no market ready salmon to process in Newfoundland, and the company had to make the difficult decision to lay off its employees on a temporary basis.
Halse said, "Although this move will impact our employees, the bigger impact for us is that we have a break Hoodie Adidas Black
