The Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) is reminding fishermen in the province about accessing the National Online Licensing System that was launched in the spring of this year.
DFO says passcodes have been mailed to fish harvesters to use to access the online system.
The passcodes remain valid until Jan. 31, 2014.
A news release today encourages fishermen to register as soon as possible
“Registering now will give you more time to have questions answered prior to the start of the 2014 fishing season,” the release states. “It will also ensure that you receive important notices from DFO via email, and in the near future see your account information including 2014 licensing fees.”
The online system allows fishermen to complete routine licensing transactions including licence renewal, vessel registrations and paying fees.
In addition, fishermen can print licences, licence conditions and other licensing documents.
