We are pleased to offer knowledge of and experience with the fishing industry.


The intricacies of fisheries licensing can be daunting, but we offer you effective guidance and representation. We represent clients in dealing with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (Canada), the Nova Scotia Department of Fisheries and CFIA. We ensure we are current on all DFO policies and procedures.

We are often called on to defend Fisheries Act and related charges before the courts.

The financing of fishing enterprises poses unique challenges. We have the experience and the tools to meet those challenges and have worked with clients and their lenders to implement solutions.

Whether you are a fish harvesting enterprise or a major processor and exporter we can offer the expertise to address the matters of concern to you.
