4R Herring - Change to Management Measure

In consultation with industry representatives, the Department reviewed the small fish tolerance in the 4R Herring fishery. Please be advised that the tolerance of the number of small fish caught and retained will be increased from 20% to 30% of the number of longer fish caught for the less than 65' purse seine fleet.

This change is on a temporary basis in Herring Fishing Areas 13 and 14 and will be discussed and reviewed further at the 2022 4R Herring Advisory.

This measure is effective once your condition is manually amended. Harvesters must fax licence document and herring condition to 709-637-4476 for manual amendment.
