As a leading groundfish processor and lobster bait supplier for Southwest Nova Scotia, managing large volumes of wild caught fish is a daily requirement. Traditionally, fish sorting was done by hand and very labour intensive. Since using the custom fabricated Fish Grader from Clare Machine Works, our production has increased significantly allowing greater export on product while our labour force is free to focus on other lucrative tasks.
