The Brunswick Fishing Company has closed its door.

An information session for employees who lost their jobs with the recent closure of the Brunswick Heads Fishing Company will be held tomorrow.

The session is being organised by the Brunswick Heads Chamber of Commerce and Nortec Staffing Solutions.

It will be held at Ocean Shores office of Nortec, located at shop 8 in the Ocean Shores Shopping Village at 10am.

The Brunswick Fishing Company had its final day on June 20 after about 34 years of operation in the coastal town.

OWNER of the company, William Silverman, of Whistle Funds Management that owns the co-op, said the decision to close came following financial pressures accentuated by the State Government plans for the Brunswick Boat Harbour.

Mr Silverman told media that the government’s plans clashed with his and the community’s vision for a ‘traditional, working port’, and he promised that the team of 23 casual staff would be paid their full entitlements.

Brunswick Heads Chamber of Commerce executive officer Cherie Heale said all chamber members were invited to the information session if they felt they could help any of the employees find new work.
