Black Duck Cove shrimp processors take to the streets

Still with the fishery and Clyde Jackman, Black Duck Cove shrimp processing workers continue to block Route 430, and say they will do so until Jackman “stops trucking gulf shrimp off of the Northern Peninsula”. More than a dozen workers, who are worried about their future at the processing plant, are attempting to block the roadways which take shrimp and other seafood products from the Northern Peninsula to be processed elsewhere instead. Jackman said he would speak to the women when they stopped protesting. “The harvesters have only just started harvesting this week, so we don’t know what prospects there are and for the past few years, despite what some of the people have said, the Northern Peninsula processes more than its average share of shrimp.” Jackman reiterated that he cannot decide what companies in the private sector do with their own plants.
