Permits for Seal and Sea Lion Deterrent
History of CDFU's involvement with sea lion Deterrent permits
For some years now CDFU has been following the issue on seal deterrents. In, 2012 CDFU and other fishing organizations successfully petitioned for an exemption of an end permit that would place unnecessary burden on fishermen. This exemption has expired as of 2018 and CDFU is currently petitioning for the exemption to be renewed.
