DFO INSHORE FISHERY OUTREACH MEETINGS (NAFO Division 2J)

The Department of Fisheries and Oceans will host meetings in Port Hope Simpson and Cartwright Labrador (NAFO Division 2J). The intent of these meetings is to provide inshore harvesters and other interested stakeholders an opportunity to discuss matters of concern in current inshore fisheries. Our primary goal will be to discuss the recently released document “What We Heard: A Discussion on the Newfoundland And Labrador Inshore Fishery”, which is a compilation of the issues raised at last year’s outreach meetings. As well, we want to hear any new concerns that harvesters may want to bring forward. These meetings will be held in the following locations:

May 7, 2019 at 9:00 a.m. at the Alexis Hotel Port Hope Simpson

May 7, 2019 at 2:30 p.m. at the LFUSCo boardroom Cartwright

The “What We Heard: A Discussion on the Newfoundland And Labrador Inshore Fishery” document can be found at the following link: http://dfo-mpo.gc.ca/fm-gp/peches-fisheries/comm/consultation/inshore-nf…
