Applying for an Introductions and Transfer Licence for the Yukon

Proponents wishing to transfer or release live fish into Yukon Territory waters must undertake the following steps:

Upon receipt of the concluded YESAB review, or within a reasonable time frame, the Transplant Committee will discuss the proposal guided by section 56 of the General Fishing Regulations and YESAB review results. The committee will, as appropriate, seek input from experts as required in regards to the technical merit of the proposal and whether the release of the fish will have adverse effects on indigenous fish stocks. There is no set time period or schedule for review, and it is, therefore, prudent to provide the transplant committee with adequate time to review and adjudicate on the application.
