Notices to Fish Harvesters

UPDATE - ELECTRONIC LOGBOOKS AND PAPER LOGBOOKS/COMBINED FORMS - FISHING SEASON 2021

Quebec –  February 23, 2021

1.Electronic logbook (Elog)

Fisheries and Oceans Canada – Quebec Region informs fish harvesters that the Elog application used in 2019 and 2020 will be permitted in 2021 for fish harvesters participating in a fishery requesting mandatory use of the Elog in Quebec and for users of fisheries where the use of Elog is optional.

The following table presents all the Quebec fleets concerned and their respective status for the 2021 season.

The Department's goal is to make the use of Elog mandatory for all fisheries by April 2023. DFO's national Elog program is working with third party developers to maximize the availability of applications to meet the new Elog requirements and  fulfill the 2023 target.

All the information you need to use Elog can be found on the Department's web page at http://www.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/elogs. 

2.Paper logbooks/Combined forms

Fisheries and Oceans Canada would like to remind Quebec fishing licence holders who will carry out fisheries for which the paper logbook/combined form will still be required in 2021 to send their order to the pre-qualified supplier for the Quebec Region as soon as possible, several weeks in advance, to avoid any delay in delivery when they start the fishing season.

You will find all the information concerning paper logbooks and combined forms on the Department's Web page at the following address: https://www.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/fisheries-peches/sdc-cps/index-eng.html.

3.Instructions for providing the ELOG-UID and Form’s number

In order to ensure the linkage of fishing data with your purchase data, your collaboration is essential. Data linkage is mainly done through the unique identifier of the electronic logbook (ELOG-UID) or the form’s number. When providing the Electronic Logbook Unique Identifier (ELOG-UID) or paper logbook/combined form’s number corresponding to your fishing trip, we suggest that you use the phonetic alphabet in the Appendix to reduce telephone transmission errors.
