    I visited Netley in the early 60s and Northland Fish were doing some operations out.of there. I was quite young so can’t offer much more info. I did my private pilot icense at RCAF flying club Gimli in 1973-64.

    Back in the 50s fish were flown to Netley, then trucked to Clandeboye,where there was a processing plant. I don’t know the name of the company , but they flew aircraft I later thought were Cansos.
