DFO advises licence holders that fishing licences for 2018 are not yet available and those who wish to fish during the first weeks of January, 2018 must first have their 2017 fishing licences manually amended by a DFO Fishery Officer or a Licensing Officer to extend their licence into 2018. Fish harvesters are advised to present their 2017 licence to any Fishery Officer or any Licensing Officer before the start of any fishing trip in 2018 and they will amend the licence end date. This will allow harvesters to continue fishing while they are awaiting their 2018 licence through the National Online Licensing System (NOLS).
The Regional Director General, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Newfoundland and Labrador Region gives notice that Variation Order 2017-309 has been revoked and Variation Order 2018-001 comes into effect on January 10, 2018.
