3L Greenland Halibut (Turbot) Test Fishery - Expressions of Interest

July 17, 2018

DFO is seeking the names of fish harvesters with homeports in 2+3KL interested in participating in a test fishery for Turbot in 3L, Zones 1 and 2, in water depths between 160-300fms. Four fish harvesters will be selected for each Zone to undertake one fishing trip to assess cod and crab by-catch. 100% observer coverage, self-funded by fish harvesters, will be a requirement.

This fishery will be open to those Harvesters who are eligible to take part in and have not previously accepted a permit for the 2+3KLMNO <65 Greenland Halibut Fishery outside 300 fathoms.  Interested fish harvesters are requested to fax their name and FIN to 709-292-5205. A draw will be held to select names.

The deadline for the submission of names will be close of business on Friday, July 27, 2018.  Late applications will not be accepted.
