Skate Fishery Opening in Sub-Division 3Ps for Mobile Gear

DFO advises that the Skate Fishery in NAFO Sub-Division 3Ps, for mobile gear vessels less than 65 feet, will open at 0600 hours on  Saturday April 10, 2021.

Incidental catch provisions for this fishery are outlined in harvesters' species-specific and 2021 Groundfish General Licence conditions.  Harvesters are reminded that while directing for skate in 3Ps using mobile-gear, all by-catch of cod will be attributed to your seasonal CAP and when a harvester has caught their seasonal CAP for cod, either from directed catch or by-catch, you must cease fishing for all species of groundfish in 3Ps for the remainder of the year.

Licence conditions are available on the National Online Licencing System (NOLS).

"Notices to Fish Harvesters" for all commercial fisheries are now available online under the Fishery Notices link on the DFO NL Region webpage at http://www.nfl.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/e0004341
