Organizing Harvesters

The Nova Scotia Department of Fisheries and Aquacultures continues to support and encourage harvesters to create a unified collective to ensure their interests are represented in matters related to the fishing industry. Strong organizations enable effective consultation and communication between industry and all levels of government and similar groups within other provinces.

The NSDFA supports this initiative with the Fish Harvesters Organization Support Act which provides a structure within which to organize and operate.
