CanFISH Gear Lending Program Support

Publix supports the CanFISH Gear Lending Program

  • “With the help of the Bycatch Solutions Hub, we’ve been connected with funders who are helping to promote fisheries sustainability through the use of safer fishing gear for wildlife in Canada through our CanFISH Lending Program.”

The CanFISH Gear Lending program is a fisheries assistance program that provides ropeless systems free of charge to fishers in New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Nova Scotia, Canada, during temporary closures designed to protect North Atlantic Right Whales.  Through this service, CanFISH is protecting the Canadian crab fishing industry and the snow crab harvester’s way of life, while promoting safe fishing methods for the critically endangered North Atlantic Right Whale (NARW).
