Clarification for Lobster Fish Harvesters
DFO advises of a clarification of a previous notice related to logbooks in the Newfoundland and Labrador lobster fishery.
Lobster logbooks must now be carried onboard the vessel at all times. It must be completed fully and accurately on a daily basis, not necessarily prior to landing. Logbooks must be made available for inspection if and when requested by a Fishery Officer, as per Item 4 of Schedule 04 - ADM Requirements to Provide Information Returns.
Fish harvesters who do not meet this condition of their licence may be subject to enforcement action.
Contact your nearest DFO office for further information.
