Extension to Lobster Season in Area 4B (Notre Dame Bay)

DFO wishes to advise harvesters that the lobster season in NAFO Division 4B has been extended and will now close at 20:00 hrs on Saturday July 11, 2015.

All gear must be removed from the water by closing time.

The extension has been granted due to lost fishing time due to ice.

– Lobster Fishing Area 12 (NAFO sub-Division 3Pn) will close on Thursday, July 2, 2015;

– Lobster Fishing Area 13A (Cape Ray to Cape St. George) will close on Sunday, July 12, 2015;

– Lobster Fishing Area 13B (from Cape St. George Cape St. Gregory) will close on Monday, July 13, 2015;

– Lobster Fishing Area 14A (Cape St. Gregory to Point Riche) will close on Monday, July 6, 2015;
