Nunatsiavut Government Recommending Deadline for Harvesting of Migratory Birds

The Nunatsiavut Government is recommending that Beneficiaries of the Labrador Inuit Land Claims Agreement refrain from harvesting migratory birds in the Labrador Inuit Settlement Area after May 31, 2018.

Based on previous discussions with experienced hunters in Labrador Inuit communities, the Nunatsiavut Government is recommending that the spring harvest be kept to a minimum.

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, and migratory birds should be harvested accordingly.

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

Conservation Officers will be monitoring the harvest of migratory birds.

If you require additional information, please contact your local Nunatsiavut Government Conservation Officer.
