As of yesterday, based on preliminary data, commercial landings for
Atlantic Mackerel are currently 8,005 tonnes. The Department will continue to
closely monitor Atlantic mackerel landings and announce a closure of the
commercial fishery when landings approach the 10,000 tonne commercial total
The PEIFA is already looking into harvesters being able to fish with
hooks on their bait license in the event the fishery is shut down. This was
permitted in the past to ensure bait could be caught for other fisheries, but
is not guaranteed to happen in 2018.
