Test fishing and bio-sampling

  The HCRS has implemented and coordinated coast wide herring test fishing programs annually since 1996.   Prior to 2007, the program was funded through an allocation of fish to the HCRS which was approved by HIAB and DFO.   In 2006, the Larocque court decision determined that this allocation could no longer continue.   From 2008 through 2012 the HCRS has successfully bid on the DFO contract to implement the test fishing program.   The program was carried out using a combination of Larocque relief funds as well as industry funding.
