Omega Protein Re-Names Fishing Operations Video
HOUSTON, TX–(Marketwired – April 26, 2017) – Omega Protein Corporation (NYSE: OME) has elected to rename its recently released fishing operations video Omega Protein: Our Menhaden Fishing Family. The new title reflects the familial ties and communal atmosphere aboard the Company’s fishing vessels, which are passed down from generation to generation of fishermen.
Using rare aerial footage and interviews with Omega Protein boat captains, spotter pilots, crewmembers and employees, the film provides viewers a unique, behind-the-scenes look at how a menhaden purse seine set is made, and what it’s like to work aboard a fishing vessel harvesting menhaden for a living.
Because the Company’s fishermen are out on the water for days at a time, usually only the fishermen themselves are able to witness the fishing process in person. Omega Protein: Our Menhaden Fishing Family is the first in-depth, up-close look at the modern menhaden fishery from the fishermen’s perspective.
Omega Protein re-titled the film in order to avoid confusion with multiple third parties, including a Minnesota non-profit corporation with registered trademark rights, which use “Fishing for Life,” or derivations thereof. These unrelated activities range from a still-in-production documentary film to several charitable endeavors.
Omega Protein Corporation has no affiliation with any of those organizations.
