The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - PROVINCE -

TIG­NISH – Ma­jor im­prove­ments are com­ing to Tig­nish Har­bour, in­clud­ing dredg­ing and re­align­ing the chan­nel, in­stalling shore pro­tec­tion, re­plac­ing a wharf and con­struct­ing a new mar­ginal wharf. Tig­nish har­bour is home port to 82 ves­sels, which pri­mar­ily land her­ring, lob­ster, snow crab, oys­ter and tuna. Land­ings in 2013 were val­ued at more than $17 mil­lion. “The Tig­nish wharf is one of the busiest in-shore har­bours in At­lantic Canada and these projects are very im­por­tant for our har­bour ac­tiv­i­ties,” said Rus­sell Gal­lant, man­ager of Judes Point/Tig­nish Har­bour Au­thor­ity. Fund­ing for the work will come through the fed­eral govern­ment’s in­vest­ments in small craft har­bours. Tig­nish is one of 23 har­bours in Prince Ed­ward Is­land to ben­e­fit from the fund­ing. In the last six years, $2.4 mil­lion has been in­vested at Tig­nish Har­bour.
