Stewardship Cod Fishery Opening in NAFO Divisions 3KL

DFO reminds harvesters that the Stewardship Cod Fishery in NAFO divisions 3KL will open on Sunday August 11, 2019 at 06:00 hours to vessel classes A295 and A283.

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.
