2J3KL Stewardship Cod Fishery Reminder of 3KL Summer Period

DFO advises that landings for the 2023 2J3KL Northern Cod Stewardship Fishery total 6,717 t for the period up to and including Monday, August 21st.

The Department will continue to monitor this fishery closely to ensure that the total harvest in 3KL remains within the maximum authorized harvest allocated for the summer period (7,799t) as per the CHP. Should landings approach this maximum authorized harvest prior to the end of the scheduled summer period (September 10), the fishery will close as per the CHP.

An update will be communicated to harvesters by a Notice to Fishers later this week or early next week if necessary.

“Notices to Fish Harvesters” for all commercial fisheries are available online under the Fishery Notices link on the DFO NL Region webpage at Newfoundland and Labrador Region
