Report a Fisheries Violation
Canada's fish are a priceless heritage, the common property of all the people of Canada.
Everyone who uses or enjoys the outdoors has a responsibility to protect and maintain it, but not everyone takes this responsibility seriously. Each year, Fishery Officers lay charges for illegal fishing, damage to fish habitat, polluting and other violations of the Fisheries Act.
If you observe a fisheries violation, you are encouraged to report it.
In any province or territory this may be done through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
* DFO: Observe, Record, Report (ORR) Line - 1-800-465-4336
