Moncton, New Brunswick – October 1, 2019 – The Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO), Gulf Region, wishes to advise the industry that the fall fishery for rock crab in Lobster Fishing Area (LFA) 25 will open at 07:00 a.m. on October 15, 2019, and will remain open until November 29, 2019.


DFO wishes to remind fish harvesters to take extra care when navigating on the opening day of the rock crab fishery as vessels are loaded with gear and traps. Harvesters are encouraged to act diligently in setting their traps and should ensure that vessels are loaded safely by reducing the quantity of gear if necessary. Fish harvesters must also exercise caution when navigating in channels where dredging operations are on-going.
