INSPECTION OF COMMERCIAL FISHING NETS



    SEPT-ILES, QC, June 13 /CNW Telbec/ - The ministry of Ressources
naturelles et de la Faune informs the residents of the Lower North Shore, the
communities east of Kegaska up to Blanc-Sablon, that wildlife protection
officers will proceed along with the Fisheries and Oceans Canada officers to
inspect commercial fishing nets and traps for herring, capelin and other bait
species.
    These inspections are necessary to protect the Atlantic anadromous salmon
species and to support the efforts of Fisheries and Oceans Canada in the
implementation of a new regulation for the sector covered by these
interventions.
    Those wishing to obtain additional information are invited to contact the
wildlife protection office located at 1325, Boreal, Havre-Saint-Pierre, by
phone at 418-538-2703.
