This flag is prescribed by a Canadian government body, Fisheries and Oceans Canada

An orange flag indicates a commercial or recreational fishing vessel is under contract by Fisheries and Oceans Canada to conduct a test fishery for research purposes.

First Nations may also operate test fisheries, authorized by the Department, using both small vessels and commercial-style vessels. Recreational boaters should remain alert in order to avoid collision with nets.
