Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) requires fish harvesters to record information about their fishing catch and effort, and to submit this data in specific Logbooks or Combined Forms. Logbook keeping is mandatory under Section 61 of the Fisheries Act, the particulars of which are outlined in the licence conditions specific to each fishery in Canada.

As of January 1, 2013, fish harvesters assumed responsibility for obtaining their own Logbooks and/or Combined Forms. While DFO was able to provide its remaining inventory of logbooks to many participants in the 2013 fishing season, fish harvesters across Canada must now acquire these documents from suppliers prequalified by the Department.

To facilitate the prequalification process, DFO is soliciting the interest of companies and/or fishing organizations and/or Aboriginal groups (hereafter, referred to as “supplier”) that are capable of printing and distributing Logbooks and Combined Forms to individual fish harvesters and/or groups of participants in specific fisheries.

Applications may be submitted at any time during the period covered by this Letter of Interest (November xx, 2013 to December 31, 2015); however, please note that the timeframe of a particular fishery may limit the application period to be eligible to provide Logbooks and/or Combined Forms to its participants. Suppliers should also be aware that the start date of the majority of fisheries is April 1st.

Once an applicant has been prequalified by DFO as a Logbook and/or Combined Forms supplier, its contact information will be added to the current list of suppliers posted at
