FFAW calling on DFO to ensure inshore fishery maintains modest fishery in the future

Earlier this week the Department of Fisheries and Oceans provided an update on the 3Ps cod stock.

DFO says the stock remains in the critical zone with little change from previous updates.

The FFAW is calling on the Department to address the impact of natural mortality on 3Ps cod as well as to ensure inshore harvesters maintain a connection to the important fishery.

The FFAW wants DFO to ensure that the small inshore fishery maintains a modest fishery into the future while additional work is done to more accurately assess the stock.
