Please note that an error was published in the English version of the Notice to Fish harvesters from DFO regarding the third opening of Atlantic halibut fishing for the Prince Edward Island fleet. This fishery is scheduled to take place from October 20 to October 24, with daily close times of 6 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. The version of the Notice to fish harvesters they sent last week was wrongfully mentioning October 25 instead of October 24.
