Fishing Restrictions in The St Anns Bank Marine Protected Area

Deadline to provide input is January 30th, 2017
The Proposed Regulations designate over 81% of the protected area as an exclusive no-fishing zone. Our local fish harvesters use sustainable, low-impact fishing methods and need not be excluded from operating in much of the proposed MPA.

Owner Operator

A license under the control of a company is fished and managed to the benefit of the company with no regard to minimum pricing, collective agreements, and local economic growth. These arrangements are known as controlling agreements. By signing this letter, you will be supporting the The Fleet Separation and Owner Operator policies. The goals of these policies are: reducing or eliminating the corporate concentration of inshore fishing licenses, ensuring that harvesting incomes were widely distributed, and ensuring the long-term viability of rural communities. Postage is free if mailing to the included addresses.
