LIstuguj Mussel Farm

Listuguj has been operating a mussel farm operation of the shore of Carleton for some years. The Listuguj Mussel Farm has been undergoing a reorganization phase with the goal of harvesting mussels to sell on the market. A new business plan and strategy has been implemented, and we have also accessed additional funding to purchase a variety of equipment that will aid in the harvesting. This include a new 28′ bayrunner boat that will be used for day-to-day operations.

Recently, the barge has been getting repaired.

With the reorganization, and addition of new equipment, we thought it was a good time to name “the Barge” as well as the new boat. Both these vessels should have new names in time for the next harvesting season in spring 2012.

We are asking for the community’s input into the naming of the 2 vessels.

The names should be representative of our Mi’ gmaq culture and heritage. A prize will be awarded to the person whose winning name is chosen.

Names should be submitted in a sealed envelopes to:

Allen Ritchie, Aquaculture Site Manager Listuguj Fisheries 44 Dundee Road, Listuguj

Deadline for submission is: February 24, 2012. For Additional information,

please call Allen at 416.788.3022
