Coastal Matters: DFO Management of Aquaculture in Newfoundland and Labrador

Part of ACAP Humber Arm’s ongoing Coastal Matters Speaker Series

October 6th,  12:30 – 1:20pm

Room 2014, Forest Centre, Grenfell Campus

Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) is the lead federal regulatory authority for aquaculture in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. In conjunction with other federal and provincial regulators, DFO manages sustainable development of the aquaculture industry while also protecting fish and habitat that support commercial, recreational, or aboriginal fisheries.

ACAP Humber Arm invites you to join our next Coastal Matters presentation where Chris Hendry, Regional Aquaculture Coordinator with Fisheries and Oceans Canada – NL Region, will discuss the various regulatory tools DFO employs, with respect to its mandates, and how it fits with other regulators, followed by a Q&A with the audience.  This talk will take place 12:30 to 1:20pm, Thursday, Oct 6th in room 2014 of the Forest Centre, Grenfell Campus, Corner Brook.

As with all Coastal Matters presentations this session is free of charge and open to the public. RSVP’s not required.  Tea and coffee will be available; feel free to bring your own bagged lunch.

ACAP Humber Arm wishes to thank Grenfell Campus for ongoing support of the Coastal Matter’s Speakers Series
