Establishment of a Technical Advisory Committee for the Atlantic Integrated Commercial Fisheries Initiative

Fisheries and Oceans Canada | Published August 15, 2017  -  Deadline September 26, 2017
cpvs

The Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) has a requirement to establish a Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) consisting of one to two members, to provide expert advice to Mi’kmaq Maliseet First Nations (MMFNs) and the Department with respect to the activities within Component 2.4 ˗ At-Sea Mentoring and In-class Training of the Atlantic Integrated Commercial Fisheries Initiative (AICFI).

 AICFI supports the enhancement of MMFN Commercial Fishing Enterprise (CFE) governance, management, administrative and operational structures and practices, in order to build capacity and enhance the long-term sustainability of the CFE.

The objectives of AICFI are designed so that participating MMFNs will:

 better use their existing access and enhance economic returns for the benefit of their communities;

  • increase their knowledge and skills required to manage their fisheries enterprises;
  • complete the training to fish safely and effectively operate their vessels; and,
  • build the capacity needed to meet their future commercial fishing operations co-management and training requirements independently.

 A critical component of the program intended to help achieve these objectives includes support for professional development of MMFN CFE’s harvesting personnel. Component 2.4 of AICFI provides technical assistance to First Nations to further develop their knowledge and skills to fish safely and effectively in various fisheries. In addition, Component 2.4 also provides support in diversifying MMFN CFE harvesting activities within in-shore and mid-shore fisheries, and improving overall fishing skills particularly in the wheelhouse, through in-class training and at-sea mentoring.

 The specialized nature of this work and heavy workload necessitates the involvement of outside support from a consulting firm with technical expertise and experience in the area of in-shore and mid-shore fisheries and fisheries training, as detailed in the Mandatory Requirements section of this Statement of Work. Therefore, the Department is seeking to establish TAC, consisting of one to two members, to provide technical assistance and advice to participating MMFN CFEs and the Department with respect to proposals for harvester training/mentoring activities under the AICFI program

Enquiries regarding this RFP requirement are to be submitted in writing to the following:

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.

Pelagic Shark Longline Survey

Fisheries and Oceans Canada | Published May 1, 2017
cpvs

Currently, there is a strong need to understand abundance, trends, and distribution patterns of multiple large pelagic sharks within the NW Atlantic. Data to inform these questions can only come from a dedicated survey as all commercial fisheries targeting pelagic sharks are closed. The data on abundance and distribution of pelagic sharks is necessary to inform international management efforts through the International Conservation Council for Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT), national fisheries management, and conservation initiatives.

This contract is for all at-sea fishing activities necessary to complete the survey. Successful completion will require multiple vessels to be fishing concurrently to minimize the potential for movement of animals throughout the survey area (see attached protocol for a description of the survey area and sampling stations).

Objectives of the Requirement

The objective of the contract is the successful sampling of all planned survey stations, up to a maximum of 60 stations. At least 90% of the survey stations must be sampled within a two-week period for the sampling to be considered successful. Therefore, Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) requires the service of multiple vessels from the pelagic longline fleet under this contract. The contractor must be able to supply multiple vessels (a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 5) for sampling. Each vessel will carry a crew complement of at least two members in addition to one scientific technician who will be contracted separately.

Background, Assumptions and Specific Scope of the Requirement

Pelagic shark longline surveys of this scope have been completed twice previously, in 2007 and in 2009. Both of these surveys were done in collaboration with license-holders in the commercial Porbeagle fishery. In these surveys, sampling took place in conjunction with regular fishing activities and fishermen were allotted additional Porbeagle quota as compensation for participating in the survey. This is no longer possible as Porbeagle is considered to be endangered in Canada and the directed fishery has been closed since 2013. 

The only remaining commercial pelagic longline fleet directs for Swordfish and Other Tunas. All license-holders in this fishery are represented by the Nova Scotia Swordfishermen’s Association. Several of the captains who previously participated in the Porbeagle fishery currently hold Swordfish and Other Tunas licenses.

For this survey to give meaningful results on the status of large pelagic sharks, consistency in sampling vessels and methodologies are essential. The Contractor must be able to supply captains who are experienced in fishing pelagic longlines and/or captains who were previously license-holders in the directed Porbeagle fishery to ensure consistency and comparability of data being collected.

Expected Start and Completion Dates

The Project work will take place between June 1, 2017 and August 31, 2017. The services of the Contractor will be required for a period of approximately three weeks within this window. Exact dates will be determined through discussion between the Project Authority and the Contractor. Working days and completion will be contingent on operational considerations of the charter based on such factors as weather, vessel maintenance/ repair requirements, etc.
