Winter Flounder (Blackback) Opening in NAFO Divisions 3KL


DFO advises that the Winter flounder (Blackback) fishery in NAFO Divisions 3KL will open at 06:00 hours on September 14, 2022.


Fish harvesters are reminded that updated conditions have been issued to reflect changes to fishing areas in Trinity Bay. Conditions are available through the National Online licencing system.


Fish harvesters should review these conditions for details on the changes and to be familiar with by-catch provisions for this fishery. By-catch levels will be closely monitored and areas will be closed where cod by-catch is excessive.


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


If you would like to have all “Notices to Fish Harvesters” for commercial fisheries sent directly to you by email please contact:
