FN1345-Upcoming Publication of Proposed Amendments to the Fishery (General) Regulations in Canada Gazette Part I

Fisheries and Oceans Canada is pleased to announce that the proposed amendments to the Fishery (General) Regulations will be pre-published in the Canada Gazette, Part I, starting on Thursday 31 December 2020 at 10:00 a.m. (ET) for a comment period ending on Sunday 31 January 2021. The usual 30-day comment period has been extended due to its overlap with seasonal holidays. This proposed regulation would:

(a)	prescribe the first "batch" of major fish stocks subject to the new Fish Stocks provisions (s. 6.1-6.3 of the Fisheries Act); and 

(b)	set out the required contents and timelines to develop rebuilding plans for prescribed fish stocks at or below their Limit Reference Point.

Starting on Thursday 31 December, the pre-publication will be found at the following link: 

Comments on the proposal can be sent to Fisheries and Ocean Canada by Sunday 31 January 2021 at the following email address:

If you have any questions regarding the regulatory amendments, including questions that may be specific to the Pacific region, please contact Roger Kanno at
