Quotas reports

The Canadian Atlantic Quota Report reflects the commercial fishery landings in Quebec with respect to the regional or national global quotas. A quota designates the catch limit set for a segment of the commercial fleet. Additional catches by vessels whose homeport or landings are elsewhere on the Canadian Atlantic coast could be attributed to certain quotas. The landings for Quebec are updated regularly.

Note: fisheries that are not subject to quota limitation are not included in this report.

The numbers provided for the last year and for the current year may be modified if new information is received.
