2017 Newfoundland Recreational Cod Fishery

NEW No Changes To Food Fishery This Year: McDonald

May 19, 2017 | 11:14 am

The federal government has decided to stay the course when it comes to this year’s food fishery, but licensing may be introduced next year.

MP Ken McDonald made the announcement this morning in Holyrood.

The federal government had been contemplating the introduction of a tags program for the recreational groundfish fishery, a notion that was widely condemned during a series of public consultations.

This year’s fishery will be the same as last year’s, which saw the season extended by 14 days.

DFO says it is considering the introduction of a marine recreational fishing licence – without the use of tags – next year. Consultations on that idea will take place throughout Atlantic Canada and Quebec over the coming year.

The report on the fish that I have heard is it's full of BlackBerry and not fit to eat. Need the capelin for the fish to gorge on and force the BlackBerry out of their system.
