Fish plant construction to begin by March
Construction of a fish processing plant promised for the East End is expected to begin before the end of the financial year next March, MPs have heard.
Business and design plans for the shoreside plant at Marginal Wharf in St David’s are being examined by a steering committee formed by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, with representatives from the Fishermen’s Association of Bermuda.
Wayne Furbert, the Cabinet office minister, told the House of Assembly last Friday he expected the committee, which convened in March, to finish its work in July.
He was speaking after Parliamentary questions from Jarion Richardson, the Opposition whip.
The plant has been allocated $1 million in this year’s Budget.
