Food fishery dates announced

The Newfoundland and Labrador recreational summer food fishery will this year open on July 23 and run until August 14. The fall fishery will run for a much shorter period from September 24 to October 2. Recreational fishers are limited to five groundfish per day (including cod). However, the maximum boat limit when three or more people are fishing is 15 groundfish. This includes tour boats. The recreational fishery is open to both residents and non-residents and there is no requirement for licences or tags. Fishery officers will monitor this fishery closely, both at sea and at dockside, to ensure regulations are followed. Complaints will be investigated and charges laid where appropriate.
