Please be advised that the goal of 90% of the Atlantic Halibut quota has been reached at the end of the first reallocation period.  There were 7070 kgs landed this week, bringing the total for the 2017 fishery to 47080 kgs or 90.5% of the initial quota.


The remaining quota (4902 kgs – preliminary amount) will be carried over to the 2018 season.
