Deadline Extended for Current Aquaculture Licences


The Department of Fisheries and Land Resources has extended the annual validation expiry date for all current existing aquaculture licences in Newfoundland and Labrador from March 31, to May 31.

The department will work with industry during the extension period to ensure aquaculture licence renewal requests are processed in a timely manner.

This decision is in consideration of economic impacts on the Newfoundland and Labrador seafood sector stemming from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
