25th ANNUAL LOCKEPORT SEA DERBY
AUGUST 12th-14th, 2016
We are excited to be celebrating our quarter-century event and are proud to be the longest running derby in Nova Scotia. Where it is our 25th Anniversary, we are hoping to do a few more things to make this year’s derby one to remember. If you have any suggestions or would like to help in any way please email us or contact a committee member.

Due to water shortage in the area, we are limited to the amount of ice we can get this year. We are asking boats to take only as much needed to pack their fish, to help accommodate all boats in the derby.
Due to new Clearwater Policies, there will not be any blown-in ice like in previous years available for boats. To accommodate our boats we have chutes available so you can shovel the ice onto your boat from wharf cases. Ice will be available during the derby on the West (Middle) Government Wharf in Lockeport, starting Friday (August 12th) at 10:00am- onward throughout the derby, crews can go over to the wharf and shovel their ice onto their boat.
Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have questions please call George Benham; President (902) 656-3267 or our student coordinator, Dylan Foote (902) 875-6532.
PLEASE READ AND BE AWARE IF YOU INTEND ON CATCHING SHARK!
INFORMATION FOR 2016
UPDATE ON DMP (DOCKSIDE MONITORING PROGRAM) FOR SHARK:
MANDATORY DMP PROGRAM FOR THE RECREATIONAL SHARK FISHERY. What this means for any shark licence holder, is that your log MUST be sent in to an official DFO Designated Dockside Monitoring Company, whether or not you catch any shark.
If you catch shark, you must fill in your log as always, filling in the required information – even if you DO NOT catch any shark….you must put “NIL” on your log and send it in. For this year’s 25th Annual Lockeport Sea Derby, we have checked into this for our participants, and one company “Barrington Catch Monitoring” has agreed to come on board as a major sponsor and do all of our shark logs for free – YOU MUST PASS THEM IN TO KAREN DASH ON THE WHARF and they must be filled in with the proper shark information or be a “NIL” report if there were none caught by you.
The Lockeport Sea Derby Association takes no responsibility for the information participants put on their logs – therefore, it is up to the licence holders to ensure they are filled out correctly before being handed in for this Free input program!
SHARK FISHING PARTICIPANTS:
UPDATED REQUIREMENT INFORMATION FROM DFO:
We have introduced the requirement for the operator of the vessel to submit a single monitoring document for all recreational licence holders on the vessel. Hopefully this will make it easier for most of the participants. The monitoring document is attached to the end of the conditions.
Instead of boats individually having to hail in and out, this year the derby association will be responsible for this!
