2020 2J3KL Cod Stewardship Fishery- Reminder of 3KL Catch Limits

As per the 2020 Conservation and Harvesting Plan (CHP), DFO reminds 3KL fish harvesters that the base authorized weekly limit increases to 3,300lbs weekly as of August 30, 2020.

Up to and including September 19, the maximum authorized number of nets onboard the vessel or in the water at any one time is 6.

Harvesters are reminded that they are to ensure that weekly landing limits are not exceeded by setting only the amount of fishing gear that is necessary to catch the weekly limits.

Fish Harvesters are advised that license conditions reflecting the weekly increase are available on the National Online Licensing System (NOLS).

Catch limits and gear amounts are outlined in the 2020 Conservation Harvesting Plan which can be found at https://www.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/fisheries-peches/commercial-commerciale/atl-arc/management-plan-gestion/CHP-cod-PPAC-morue-2020-eng.html
