The Nova Scotia government is strengthening the regulations that govern the province’s fish harvesters and their organizations.
Changes to the Fish Harvester Organizations Support Act include the addition of definitions for terms used in the act and regulations.
The act requires fish harvesters to pay mandatory dues to accredited associations. The provisions of this act come into force if harvesters vote to implement the act in their region.
The act is in force in the three regions encompassing the coast line, from the Nova Scotia-New Brunswick border on the Northumberland Strait to the mouth of the Sackville River in Halifax Harbour.
