At-sea Observer Conditions

Further to the recently released Fisheries Management Order 2020-03, DFO advises that you must have an At-sea Fisheries Observer on board your vessel when fishing multiple areas during the same fishing trip in fisheries where this is a requirement in your licence conditions.

Conditions, such as these, are intended to provide flexibility to the harvester to carry out a specific activity that is normally not permitted in that fishery.

Notices to Fish Harvesters” for all commercial fisheries are now available online under the Fishery Notices link on the DFO NL Region webpage at http://www.nfl.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/e0004341

If you would like to have all “Notices to Fish Harvesters” for commercial fisheries sent directly to you by email please contact: [email protected]
