Fisheries Law

We understand the fishery. We help our clients to navigate the regulatory matrix surrounding it by providing concise advice and responsive representation when called upon.

Our expertise spans practically all facets of the fishery, including the purchase and sale of vessels, licenses and quota. We also assist with licensing applications and appeals, shareholder and partnership matters, and the defence of statutory offences. We regularly represent clients in dealing with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (Canada), the Nova Scotia Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture, and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
