2J3KL Northern Cod Stewardship/Bycatch - Weekly Limits Reminder


DFO reminds harvesters that the base authorized weekly limits for the 2J3KL northern cod stewardship/bycatch fishery for the period of July 30th - September 2nd are as follows:

2J = 4000 lbs/week

3KL = 2000 lbs/week

Harvesters are reminded that they are to ensure that weekly landing limits are not exceeded by setting only the amount of fishing gear that is necessary to catch the weekly limits. This is particularly important at the start of the season when fish abundance levels are unknown.
