    information is available on the internet at: http://www-ops2.pac.dfo-
    mpo.gc.ca/xnet/content/salmon/testfish/default.htm

    Fishers are advised that a mandatory harvest log and catch reporting program is

    required for all fishing activity even if no fish are caught. Please refer to
    Area D Conditions of Licence for updated information.

    Fisheries and Oceans Canada is interested in reports of sea turtles in BC
    waters. By documenting sightings we are able to learn more about how, when, and
    where these turtles are using our waters. If you see a sea turtle, please call
    this toll-free phone number: 1-866-I SAW ONE (1-866-472-9663). Please include
    information such as the type of sea turtle seen (i.e. leatherback), the
    location, and time of sighting.

    Environment Canada (EC) is monitoring seabird by-catch to determine potential
    impact on bird populations under current fishing effort and bird numbers.
    Fishers are requested to submit all dead birds entangled in nets to EC for
    species confirmation and DNA analysis to determine the colony of origin.
    Please call your local charter patrol to organize pick-up, drop carcasses off
    at a local DFO office, or contact EC directly by calling the EC Reporting Line
    1-866-431-2473 (BIRD). Label birds with date, time, location and vessel name
    (Skipper name isnít needed). Handle birds with gloves, double bag dead birds,
    store on ice. Questions: contact Laurie Wilson (laurie.wilson@ec.gc.ca, 604-862-
    8817).
