Migratory Birds

The Nunatsiavut Government is recommending that Beneficiaries in the Labrador Inuit Settlement Area refrain from harvesting migratory birds after May 30, 2021.

Based on previous discussions with experienced hunters in our communities, the Nunatsiavut Government is recommending that the Spring Harvest be kept to a minimum.

The NG recommends that hunters should exercise good conservation practices and not exceed four (4) Canada geese and eight (8) freshwater ducks and divers per household.

Please keep in mind that this is the mating season of migratory birds and birds should be harvested accordingly.

Harvesting of Harlequin Duck (Lords and Ladies) is prohibited.

If you require additional information, please contact your local Nunatsiavut Government Conservation Officer. Conservation Officers will be monitoring the harvest of migratory birds.
