Amendment - Licence Extensions for 2020

Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) advises that those fish harvesters who had their 2019 fishing licences manually amended by a DFO Fishery Officer or a DFO Licensing Officer to allow fishing until Monday, January 20, 2020 should be aware that these licences will now be further extended to Monday, January 27, 2020, inclusive.

Additionally, fish harvesters who have not yet fished in 2020, and who now require an amendment to extend their 2019 fishing licence, can contact a DFO Fishery Officer or a DFO Licensing Officer. These licences will also be extended to Monday, January 27, 2020, inclusive.

This will allow commercial harvesters to continue fishing while they are awaiting their 2020 licences.

“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
