Selective and high-performance pelagic trawl development for responsible redfish fishing (Sebastes mentella and Sebastes fasciatus) in the Saint-Lawrence gulf

Fisheries and Oceans Canada | Published September 15, 2017
cpvs

DESCRIPTION OF REQUIREMENT:

The purpose of this bid solicitation is to fill critical knowledge gaps to support decision-making on critical conservation issues associated with redfish stocks.

In the very likely event of a re-opening of commercial redfish fisheries, essential knowledge gaps to support decision-making on critical conservation issues need to be addressed. The project aims to develop and test a selective pelagic trawl in order to propose this alternative to fishermen exploiting redfish by bottom trawl. Innovative modifications to trawl will be proposed, tested, and optimized to increase selectivity, reduce bycatches, and avoid contact between fishing gear and seabed. The results will be used to assess trawl characteristics and fishing conditions allowing the capture of commercial size redfish while minimizing incidental catches of young individuals, which are currently highly abundant, as well as other species present in the target species habitat.

Please see the attached RFP for additional information.

DURATION OF CONTRACT

The contract period is from date of contract to June 30, 2018 with option to renew for two (2) additional one (1) year periods.

ENQUIRIES – BID SOLICITATION

All enquiries must be submitted in writing to the Contracting Authority no later than FOUR (4) calendar days before the bid closing date. Enquiries received after that time may not be answered.

PROCESS AND SELECTION METHODOLOGY

A bid must comply with all requirements of the bid solicitation to be declared responsive. The responsive bid with the lowest evaluated price will be recommended for award of a contract.

ROE HERRING CATCH SAMPLING LAND BASED

Fisheries and Oceans Canada | Published November 16, 2017
cpvs

The commercial roe herring fishery occurs in five stock areas determined by major herring stocks; Prince Rupert District, Central Coast, Haida Gwaii, West Coast of Vancouver Island, and Strait of Georgia. Roe herring fisheries are only planned for stock areas that are forecast to be above the commercial fishery cut-off, and depend on available abundance. The roe herring fishery takes place as the herring gather to spawn during late February to mid or late March in southern BC, and mid- March to mid-April in northern BC. Opening dates and times for the commercial fishery are announced on the fishing grounds once the roe has matured to optimum quality. Specific fishing locations are determined by major concentrations of fish and the potential for the highest roe yield.

This contract is to conduct catch sampling of all roe (commercial) herring fisheries in British Columbia. These samples are a critical part of the annual stock assessment for BC herring.

Lower Johnstone Strait and Discovery Islands Juvenile Salmon Survey Vessel Charter

Fisheries & Oceans Canada | Published August 12, 2015
Winner
Canadian Fishing Company
cpvs

The Pacific Biological Station, Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO), will be chartering a fishing vessel to sample juvenile sockeye salmon and other Pacific salmon in the Discovery Islands and Strait of Georgia, British Columbia. Vessels must be certified by Transport Canada to conduct research work. In addition to the Certification provided by Transport Canada Marine Safety, an inspection by Canadian Coast Guard officers will be conducted prior to the vessel commencing the Survey Charter. Introduction The Pacific Biological Station, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, will require a purse seine vessel 2 days per week for 8-10 weeks to collect juvenile sockeye salmon and other Pacific salmon from the Discovery Islands and southern Johnstone Strait (Figure 1A). This work will take place between May 10 and July 19, 2015. Total days are dependent on funding. Operations will begin and end in Campbell River, Browns Bay or Kelsey Bay, British Columbia. Contracting Period The Contract dates are as follows: May 1, 2015 through to April 30, 2016, with options to renew for 2 additional 1 year periods at the sole discretion of Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO). Option periods if exercised will be May 1, 2016 through to April 30, 2017, May 1, 2017 through to April 30, 2018. The Project work will take place between approximately May 10 and July 15 of each year. Exact dates will be determined by the DFO Project Authority. Scope of Work The early summer juvenile salmon survey will examine the distribution, stock composition (from DNA analyses), migration, food web interaction, lipid utilization, and growth of juvenile salmon in the Strait of Georgia and Discovery Islands. Oceanographic samples (zooplankton and CTD (conductivity, temperature and depth recording device) casts) will also be collected during this survey. The focus of the work is to sample juvenile sockeye salmon from the Fraser River during their migration from the Strait of Georgia through the Discovery Islands to determine the timing and relative abundance of juveniles in this region over their early marine period. The utilization of the Discovery Islands and lower Johnstone Strait by other juvenile salmon species will also be examined. In addition to the sampling listed above, additional sampling to assess the physiological-basis for regional variation in juvenile salmon growth and examine pathogens in juvenile salmon will be conducted. This will involve the collection of blood samples to measure the concentration of growth hormones in blood plasma, and the collection of a series of tissues to examine gene expression. These projects will require a dedicated sampling area in addition to the space normally required by DFO to collect basic biological and oceanographic data. The department is looking for a commercial seine vessel and a skipper with a history of fishing in these regions. The reason being is these regions are subject to high tidal flows and extreme currents. This limits the window of opportunity for fishing in any given day. Knowledge of these waters and areas allows optimization of fishing in any given day and reduces risk associated with purse seining in waters subject to high tidal flows.

Note that this is merely an estimate of the expected work and the number of actual days will depend on fishing patterns and funding available to deliver the project. 1.4 Schedule and Estimated Level of Effort (Work Breakdown Structure) The Contractor is required to have resources which will include a minimum of 2 vessels and 2 skippers capable of performing this requirement for each operational area. If the primary vessel is not available the secondary vessel will be used. The estimated level of potential patrol days for each of the operational areas will be 25-42 days. Given recent fishing patterns, this work will likely be distributed as follows: Month Patrol days May 2 June 2 July 3-5 August 10-22 September 1-2 October 4-10 November 3-6 Total : 25-42 Note: The majority of the patrol days often will occur on weekends due to the nature of the fisheries being monitored but will be determined by the project authority. 1.5 Objectives of the Requirement The contractor will be required to complete patrols of the operational area by vessel. A number of fisheries related activities will be required such as: collecting data on fisheries catch and effort, disseminating information from DFO on key programs and policies, developing relationships with members of the public encountered while on patrol, transporting and assisting DFO sampling teams and reporting back to DFO on patrol activities in the form of activity reports and catch and effort datasheets. These activities support effective management of the fisheries in the area. 1.6 Background, Assumptions and Specific Scope of the Requirement As identified above, there is a need for the collection of fisheries information by a contractor to support the accurate assessment of catch and effort arising from recreational, commercial and First Nations food, social and ceremonial fisheries in the Lower Fraser Area. The work to be undertaken focuses on salmon fisheries in-river and, as such, will require the contractor to be available to conduct patrols during the peak seasons for these fisheries; typically from May through November. Further to this requirement, due to the nature of the fisheries being monitored, patrols are typically focused on weekends with one or two patrols required per weekend during August and October and one or two patrols required every two weekends during May, June, July and November. This work occurs in river sections where access to a jet boat will be a benefit to the contractor and, but for the Fraser River and tributaries upstream on Mission to the Hope area, a jet boat will be required. Contractors will be expected to have significant knowledge of the river sections in question to ensure safe operation during patrols. On occasion (0-5 times per year) there will be a requirement for DFO employees to participate in patrols with the Contractor. Any participation will be coordinated by the project authority and will be discussed and planned in concert with the Contractor.

1.0 Title Lower Fraser Area Patrol Services 1.2 Introduction Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) is broadly mandated to understand, protect, and conserve the aquatic resources of Canada. In support of this DFO implements contracts with service providers to conduct fisheries patrol activities in the Lower Fraser Area. Contractors are required to conduct patrols of the fishing areas to assess fishing activity, liaise with fishers and to collect and report data to DFO. The work is broken into two operational areas for which 2 contracts will be awarded: 1. Fraser River and tributaries downstream of Mission to Sandheads 2. Fraser River and tributaries upstream of Mission to Sawmill Creek. The Contractor is required to have resources which will include a minimum of 2 vessels and 2 skippers for each operational area. 1.3 Contract Period June 1, 2015 through to April 30, 2016, with options to renew for 3 additional 1 year periods at the sole discretion of Fisheries and Oceans Canada.

Letter Of Interest For Supplying Gear Tags for Fisheries and Oceans Canada

Fisheries and Oceans Canada | Published November 10, 2017
cpvs

Overview Effective April 1, 2013, Atlantic Canada licence holders have been required, in areas where tags are mandatory, to assume full responsibility for both the cost and acquisition of commercial gear tags. As a result, licence holders are required to obtain gear tags from a Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) approved tag supplier of their choice that services their fishing area. To guide the process, DFO developed the Protocol for Gear Tagging in Atlantic Commercial Fisheries (The Protocol). The first cycle of the Protocol was implemented from 2014-2017. The updated Protocol, which establishes a repeating 3-year cycle for tags distribution, will be effective April 1, 2018, and is available at www.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/fm-gp/sdc-cps/protocol-eng.htm. The Protocol sets out application procedures, tags specifications, the process for issuing tags to licence holders, and audit processes in place to ensure the reliability of the tagging process. It is important to note that an updated version of the Protocol will be available online prior to every new 3-year cycle and that, for operational needs, it may be updated by DFO on a yearly basis prior to the Tagging Plan submission deadline. In advance of the new cycle, DFO is soliciting the interest of companies, fishing organizations and Aboriginal groups who may apply to be considered by DFO as approved tag suppliers. DFO will review proposed applications in their ability to meet the criteria outlined in the Protocol, and submitted in a proposed Tagging Plan by applicants. Tagging Plans must demonstrate that tags meet departmental standards, confirm the integrity of the distribution system and provide for audits by Fishery Officers. To ensure the integrity of the tagging system, DFO will not approve Tagging Plans submitted by applicants where approval will result in a conflict of interest between an approved tag supplier and licence holders. Details on how to complete a Tagging Plan is included in the Protocol. Should you be interested to be considered as an approved tag supplier, please submit your application by December 8, 2017 to your regional office (Attention: Regional Gear Tag Program Coordinator) including your proposed Tagging Plan’ (a template is available at http://www.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/fm-gp/sdc-cps/nir-nei/tags-etiquettes-temp-gab-eng.htm ). Once an applicant has been approved by DFO, its contact information will be added to the list of approved tag suppliers and posted at http://www.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/fm-gp/sdc-cps/nir-nei/tags-supplier-region-eng.htm.
