Welcome to the Fish Harvesters Registration and Certification Board of Nova Scotia website. We hope that this portal will be able to help educate fish harvesters on what we propose to offer and you can monitor the progress of the organizations development.   We have a long history of working to establish a registration, certification and training system for fish harvesters in Nova Scotia. This service will be valuable to fish harvesters by improving skills and knowledge and strengthening a training and safety culture amongst fishermen.

We have established an implementation plan over a two year period with the help of industry, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, and Nova Scotia Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture. Our goal is to be up and running for 2022.
