hagfish (Myxine glutinosa) : December 18, 2015, Moncton, New Brunswick /

"The fishery for hagfish (Myxine glutinosa) in the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence started in 2011 with the issuance of four Exploratory Licences. The purpose of these exploratory licences is to determine if the stock can sustain a commercially viable operation and to collect additional biological data. The exploratory licences are for the Gulf Nova Scotia portion of NAFO Div. 4T and have a number of conditions associated with them. A hagfish conservation harvesting plan for the Gulf Nova Scotia sector was developed. DFO Fisheries and Aquaculture Management (FAM) requested an assessment of the status of hagfish in the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence to assist in the decisions required regarding the continuation of the exploratory status of the hagfish fishery in the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence. A regional science peer review meeting to address the request for advice from FAM was held December 18, 2015 in Moncton, New Brunswick. Participants included DFO staff from the Gulf region, fishermen and academia”--Summary, p. iv.
