DFO reminds the public that the 2015 Summer season of the recreational groundfish fishery for Newfoundland and Labrador (NAFO Divisions 2GH, 2J3KL, 3Ps, 3Pn and 4R) will close one (1) hour after sunset on Sunday, August 9, 2015.
The fall season will open on September 19 to September 27, 2015.
Participants in the recreational groundfish fishery are reminded to inspect their catch carefully for pink or yellow tags, located in the back of the fish. The tags are uniquely numbered and have a DFO address and reward value ($10 or $100) printed on them.
Participants should return the tag to DFO, along with recapture information and their mailing address to claim the tag reward.
