DFO advises harvesters that the Stewardship Cod Fishery in NAFO divisions 2J3KL will open on Sunday July 24, 2022 at 06:00 hours to vessel classes A283, A292 and A295.

Fish Harvesters are advised that licence conditions will be available soon on the National Online Licensing System (NOLS).

Harvesters are reminded that they are to ensure that weekly or bi-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.

Further details on gear and catch limits can be found at: 2022 Conservation Harvesting Plan (CHP) 2J3KL Stewardship Cod fishery - AMENDED July 15, 2022
