BARNSTABLE – NOAA fisheries has increased the possession and trip limits for Gulf of Maine cod and haddock for non-sector vessels.
Limits for cod are 100 pounds per trip with no daily possession limit.
The limits for haddock are 500 pounds per day-at-sea and 1,000 pounds per trip.
The new limits were implemented to increase opportunities for limited access permit vessels.
The small vessel category combined limit of 300 pounds for Gulf of Maine cod, haddock and yellowtail flounder remains in effect.
