    Salmon Patrol Services –Central Coast


    Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) has a requirement to conduct Salmon Patrol Services on the Pacific north coast of British Columbia. The contractor must have the ability to assess salmon stocks, report on fishing activities, collect and provide catch statistics, conduct stream inventories, and collect biological samples. In addition, it must possess the tools and equipment to conduct the work.

    The intent is to establish a standing offer for each patrol area so that the contractor can be called up to provide services on an as and when required basis. The inclusion of estimated days per year in the cost proposal document is not a commitment by DFO. It is anticipated that resource managers will endeavour to be in contact with contractors to discuss an upcoming season and what possible level of effort may be considered so that contractors can plan their business accordingly. These discussions are not a commitment or guarantee by DFO to call up or contract for these estimates.

    Standing offers are not a guarantee of business and Fisheries and Oceans Canada is not obligated to use these services.

    May 1, 2021 through to April 30, 2025
