Introduction

Context

Rationale

Proposal

Discussion

  1. If a decision is made to eventually apply a fee to the proposed licence, what should the fee entail in terms of categories of licences, levels of fees, timing of implementation, etc.?
  2. The licence would initially apply to groundfish, mackerel, and striped bass (except in Quebec), are there other marine species that should be included? Are there any concerns about mandatory reporting of catch?
  3. In the Pacific coast, the licence is issued online, what type support would be needed for such a system in Eastern Canada? What management conditions should be included on the licence?
  4. Are there any other issues that should be considered?
