DFO Inshore Fishery Outreach Meetings - Labrador

The Department of Fisheries and Oceans would like to advise that virtual Outreach meetings will be held throughout the Region in the coming weeks.

The intent of these meetings is to provide inshore harvesters and other interested stakeholders an opportunity to discuss matters of concern with respect to the various inshore fisheries. The Department would also like to take the opportunity to discuss recent changes to various licensing processes and to seek input on the Vessel Length/Replacement policy. 

The proposed agenda is as follows: 

1.    Introduction. 

2.    Licencing requests, NOLS and service standards. 

3.    Vessel Length/Replacement Policy  

4.    Inshore Regulations.   

5.    Open Agenda. 

There will be additional meetings for Fish Harvesters in other NAFO areas and more information will be released in the near future.
