Salmon designation distribution for 2020
The NunatuKavut Community Council (NCC) has finalized details of our 2020 communal fishery license. Salmon designations are available in all areas starting Thursday, June 25 during regular office hours (8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.). Salmon season dates are below:
Upper Lake Melville
June 15 – July 8, 2020 and July 20 – September 1, 2020
July 1 – August 9, 2020
NCC will be following provincial COVID-19 public health directives to ensure the safety of our members and staff, which includes limited access to our office buildings. This may result in additional wait times for designation pick-up. We ask for your patience as we operate under these restrictions.
Please note that there is only one fishing designation permitted per household. This includes designations from other Indigenous groups and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans.
Members can pick up designations at our local offices in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Cartwright and Port Hope Simpson. You can also call ahead to have your designation completed over the phone. NCC staff will explain any new conditions of the license and provide you with a pick-up time. In Labrador West, staff will only be available to complete designations by phone. Please note that Non-Resident designations will only be issued in-person in NCC offices in our designated fishing areas. All contacts are listed below.
