In 1989 Cape Pond Ice and The Railways sold 23,000 tons of ice to the fishing industry.
In 1998 Cape Pond Ice and the Railways sold 12,000 tons of ice to the fishing industry
In 2008 Cape Pond Ice and The Railways sold 5500 tons of ice to the fishing industry.
People say that Cape Pond Ice is a vital part of the hub services for the fishing industry but Scott says that for him to continue he will need alternative supporting uses to continue to serve that very same industry. He says he needs financially viable supporting uses outside of the fishing industry to keep it all going.
He would need to be able to diversify to keep things going but the people that want him to keep going are the same ones that may put him out of business by not allowing him to diversify.
How ironic is that?
