•    In the case of a vessel to be registered, in addition to the application form for inspection, all documents required for registration must be submitted as well.
•    The Sports Fishing Vessel Licence requires that an inspection be done to establish that the vessel being presented is in-compliance with the Fisheries Act and supporting regulations and can qualify for a Fishing Licence.


New Vessels to the Fishing Fleet

•    If the vessel is found to be unsuitable for registration, the CFO will identify in writing what is required to make the vessel suitable for registration.
•    If suitable, a full inspection and subsequent registration will be completed at a date to be determined.


Local and Foreign Vessels to Register/ Licence
1.    A Register/ Licence Inspection set out to establish that the vessel being presented is in compliance with the Fisheries Act and supporting regulations.
