NOTICE TO FISH HARVESTERS
Unit I redfish fishery re-opening
Recognizing that the exploratory Unit 1 redfish fishery is late getting started this year and there is general interest among Unit 1 licence holders to explore fishing during the fall months, DFO will re-open the Unit 1 redfish index fishery as catches reported to date are well below the 2,000t index fishery limit.
Licence holders with access to the Unit 1 redfish index fishery and remaining quota available will be permitted to fish during the period November 27 to December 31, 2018.
Note that participation is conditional on 100% ASO coverage for fishing trips during this period. All existing habitat and other conservation area closures, including areas closed due to high catches of small fish and by-catch will remain in effect.
The Regional Director General, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Newfoundland and Labrador Region gives notice that Variation Order 2018-389 has been revoked and Variation Order 2018-398 comes into effect at 1800 hours on November 26, 2018.
