4R Herring - Change to Management Measure
In consultation with industry representatives, the Department has implemented a pilot small fish protocol for the 4R Herring fishery in Areas 13 and 14, varying the percentage of minimum length. Please be advised that the small fish protocol will be implemented for the >65' and <65' purse Seine Fleets only at this time.
All licence holders must review their new conditions to determine minimum size and percentage for their fleet.
This measure is effective as of 1500 hours on January 11, 2023.
