March 2, 2023 – Government of PEI: Fishers in PEI will soon be using a new homegrown e-log system to help protect ocean resources.
To meet the reporting requirements set out by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) for Island fishers by 2024, the Department of Fisheries and Communities (DFC) is providing a one-time grant of $250,000 over three years to the PEI Fishermen’s Association (PEIFA) to get an e-log solution for their members.
“The Prince Edward Island Fishermen’s Association (PEIFA) is pleased with the financial commitment from the Department of Fisheries and Communities for this project. The PEIFA has a long-standing mandate to provide our members with a DFO approved electronic logbook at a low cost. Our collective effort will help to ensure that mandate becomes a reality,” says PEIFA President, Bobby Jenkins.
