Fines Imposed for Canada Crab Fishermen

05 March 2015

CANADA - Two individuals have been found guilty for violating their crab fishing license conditions, contrary to the Fishery (General) Regulations, with combined fines of C$7,500.

The Government of Canada is committed to safeguarding the long-term health and productivity of Canada’s fisheries resources, and the habitat that supports them, for generations to come.

Fisheries and Oceans Canada has a mandate to protect and conserve marine resources and to prosecute offenders under the Fisheries Act.

It ensures and promotes compliance with the Act and other laws and regulations through a combination of land, air, and sea patrols, as well education and awareness activities.
