Among the one hundred or so marine industry businesses at the North Atlantic Fish and Workboat Show at Mile One Centre is one company you may not expect to find in that kind of milieu.
Mills, Pittman and Twyne is a Clarenville-based law firm specializing in fisheries law. Joe Twyne says a specific area of knowledge and expertise is required when a harvester is looking to expand their enterprise or acquire additional fishing licenses.
The firm has over 40 years of experience with fisheries law and Twyne says Clarenville is ideal because it is centrally located.
He says the firm is a regular exhibitor at the Fish and Boat Show and he feels the venue provides a great way to connect with people working on the water.
Twyne says the show helps get their name out there. He points to the situation of connecting with a marine industry professional and hearing from them year later when they need specialized assistance.
