More than 300 fish plant workers have been blindsided by the closure of the three P. Janes and Sons seafood processing plants in Newfoundland on Monday, but another fish plant owner said he hopes to hire most of the displaced workers.

Bill Barry, president of the Barry Group, said his company was buying most of the equipment from the facilities in Hant's Harbour, Jackson's Arm and Salvage.

Barry said there could be opportunities for the displaced workers at his fish processing operations.

“In lots of cases these people are spread over a big area and we’ve got plants that are pretty well close to all of the Janes’ plants,” said Barry.
