DFO, First Nations Renew Lobster Fishing ‘Understanding’

Four First Nations have renewed an ‘interim understanding’ with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans.

The Acadia, Annapolis Valley, Bear River and Glooscap bands will once again launch a moderate livelihood lobster fishery under a DFO-issued harvest document.

They’ll fish 3,500 traps in LFA’s 33, 34 and 35 during lobster season.

In a release, Fisheries Minister Joyce Murray says the understanding shows continued progress in implementing the treaty right to fish for a moderate livelihood.

The first understanding was implemented last year.
