Stewardship Cod Fishery Opening in NAFO Divisions 3KL

DFO reminds harvesters that the Stewardship Cod Fishery in NAFO divisions 3KL will open on Sunday August 9, 2020 at 06:00 hours to vessel classes A295 and A283.

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

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. 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:

The Regional Director General, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Newfoundland and Labrador Regions gives notice that Variation Order 2020-161 has been revoked and Variation Order 2020-162 comes into effect on August 8, 2020.

“Notices to Fish Harvesters” for all commercial fisheries are now available online under the Fishery Notices link on the DFO NL Region webpage at
