Stewardship Cod Fishery Opening in NAFO Division 2J for Period 1

 

DFO advises harvesters that the Period 1 Stewardship Cod Fishery in NAFO division 2J will open on Sunday August 1, 2021 at 06:00 hours to vessel classes A292.

 

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

 

Harvesters are reminded that they are to ensure that 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.
