DFO’s Update on Capelin Brings Stock Out of Critical Zone

The Department of Fisheries and Oceans announced that capelin stock is no longer in the critical zone. Healthy and cautious zones have not yet been defined.

FFAW President Greg Pretty said, “The small capelin fishery is important for our coastal communities both in terms of the additional income it provides for fish harvesters who can diversify their business model, and also for plant workers who need those additional days of work during the fishing season.”

The FFAW says the capelin fishery has the potential for landed values of $20 million or more per.
