As key stakeholders and environmental representatives, Environmental Non-Governmental Organizations across Newfoundland and Labrador are being invited to participate as consultants in the review of the 2012 Fisheries Act.  NLEN will be compiling comments and submissions from ENGOs within NL recommending specific amendments to the Fisheries Act to restore lost protections and incorporate modern safeguards. For more information and to register as a partipating ENGO, please follow this link.
