DFO will no longer issue gear tags

posted Aug 31, 2012, 4:50 AM by Veronika Brzeski

Another cut to the department. Issuing gear tags are to be contracted out. Who will issue them? So far no criteria for tags providers have been set (other than it has be an incorporated body). We are expecting more news by the end of September. Then whoever takes on the task will have to prepare a proposal to DFO, wait for approval and then scramble to be ready for May!

Why a Management Board for LFA 27?

posted Mar 15, 2012, 8:26 AM by Yellow Maps

The LFA 27 Management Board was established by a group of dedicated lobster fishermen in response to problems in the lobster fishery. They were spurred on by a DFO announcement of available funding to implement sustainability plans in management of the lobster fishery. Many of the members of the Board are port representatives on the LFA 27 Lobster Advisory Board. With the support of some local fishing organizations and funding from the provincial Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture and ECBC, the Board has hired a project manager, Veronika Brzeski.
The LFA 27 Management Board needs to hear from ALL fishermen! The lobster fishery has experienced a serious economic downturn and we need to put our heads together and find some solutions. How can we make the fishery more sustainable? How can we maintain a good living from our licenses?
