Comments Off on SHARK LOG DMP RULE




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 26th  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!



 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!
