Québec – May 3rd, 2017

The Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Quebec Region, informs Quebec fixed-gear groundfish licence holders that the carry forward project will be renewed for a last time in 2017-2018 prior to the introduction of new quota carry forward provisions that will be developed based on the guidelines presented at the last Groundfish Advisory Committee in Moncton.

The carry forward of residual quotas from the 2016-2017 fishing season may be authorized up to a maximum of 15% of the initial quotas for Greenland halibut and Atlantic halibut.
