Capelin Doing Well in Gulf, Moving into North East NL

July 5, 2018

As has been the case along much of the west coast this year, harvesters in the Labrador Straits are seeing a great sign of capelin and more in the traditional time of late June and early July, signifying the gulf stock. Here, trap harvesters in L’Anse aux Loup enjoy the beautiful weather and the great fishing.

Capelin are now in Conception Bay, with the fishery opening on Sunday for mobile gear.

Capelin have also moved into Bonavista Bay and Trinity Bay, as we await sampling results for those areas.
