Survey of Recreational Fishing in Canada

2007 Survey of the Recreational Cod Fishery of Newfoundland and Labrador

  • 2007 Survey of the Recreational Cod Fishery of Newfoundland and Labrador

    With the 2007 opening of the fishery came a pledge by the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans, Loyola Hearn, to conduct a post-season survey of catch and effort in the recreational cod fishery. It was considered essential, given the number of participants in the fishery, that an assessment of activity and success in the fishery be undertaken, in addition to normal surveillance of the fishing activity by DFO patrols. This report provides highlights, summary statistics and detailed information tables on all aspects of the survey.
