Fish Harvesters will have an option to either register with the board or continue to register with DFO.  If they decide to register with the board, those funds will be used to run the board.  Fish Harvesters will only pay once.

The intention of the board is to maintain this fee at the current rate. Any changes made to the annual fee charged for registration and certification would have to be supported by the board and the Minister of Fisheries and Aquaculture in the Province of Nova Scotia.
