REMINDER: LOGBOOKS FOR THE 2023 2J3KL STEWARDSHIP COD FISHERY
DFO would like to remind harvesters fishing in the Northern cod Stewardship Fishery that logbooks must be completed for all fishing trips.
Harvesters fishing with vessels less than 35’ are required to complete and submit the white ‘Fixed Gear Logbook for the Less Than 35 Foot Vessel Sector.’ Harvesters must make and maintain a copy of each fishing trip for the entire fishing season and the logbook must be produced for inspection upon request by a Fishery Officer. A completed and accurate log must be submitted when the logbook is fully completed, or at the end of the fishing season, whichever comes first.
Harvesters fishing with vessels greater than 35’ are required to complete and submit the ‘General Fisheries Log.’ A completed and accurate log must be submitted at the end of the first week of the calendar year in which fishing activity takes place, and at the end of each and every subsequent week, or at the end of each fishing trip, whichever comes first, until fishing activity ceases for the year.
“Notices to Fish Harvesters” for all commercial fisheries are now available online under the Fishery Notices link on the DFO NL Region webpage at Newfoundland and Labrador Region
If you would like to have all “Notices to Fish Harvesters” for commercial fisheries sent directly to you by email please contact email@example.com
