Winter Flounder (Blackback) Fishery Closing in 3KL
DFO advises that the winter flounder (blackback) fishery will close in NAFO Divisions 3KL at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, August 17, 2018. Fish harvesters must have all gear removed from the water by closing time.
The closure is due to excessive cod by-catch levels. Harvesters are advised that the Department will revisit this decision in the coming weeks and a decision about reopening will be made at that time.
