The provincial government ordered a review of the final-offer selection of fish pricing last July, but it didn't do the job. A second, much broader review is critical to ensure the inshore fleet receives a fair market share from the sale of snow crab or any species. Enterprises owners must also have right to vote on the price of fish, which is their collective agreement. The tie-up must not end before conditions are met.
