The Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) is looking to bring new fishery officers to the province.

DFO’s conservation and protection unit is in the midst of a nation-wide recruitment campaign. Applications for new recruits will be accepted until Jan. 2.

“Our fishery officers are on the water, on the wharves, in communities and at facilities ensuring the conservation and protection of species, and the long-term sustainability of Indigenous, commercial, and recreational fisheries,” reads a news release from DFO.

“New recruits will get the chance to take part in marine and aerial patrols, surveillance and undercover operations, investigate fisheries and habitat offences, and work with the people in your community to ensure Canada’s fisheries remain sustainable for future generations.”
