$300,000 dock repair project complete at Lax Kw'alaams

A major project in Lax Kw'alaams has come to an end, with small craft harbour infrastructure repairs complete, providing for replacement of the floats at the community harbour. It provides for space and capacity that will allow for the arrival of larger vessels landing fish for the processing plant in the community.

As we outlined on the blog last October the recently opened Coast Tsimshian Fish Plant has been heralded both in Lax Kw'alaams and other North Coast communities as a key part of the economy for the region and one that offers up the opportunity to provide for employment for those in the Lax Kw'alaams community.

The refurbishment of the local docks there, will offer up the potential of more fish landings and larger volumes heading into the summer salmon season.

The completion of the project gave the Federal Fisheries Department cause to outline the details of their infrastructure investment project across Canada, of which Lax Kw'alaams was but one of 95 fishing harbours to benefit from.
