St. Anns Bank Marine Protected Area (MPA) was designated on June 2, 2017.

As a result, fisheries restrictions are now in effect.

All recreational and commercial fisheries (with the exception of commercial seal harvest) are prohibited in Zone 1. Certain fisheries are allowed in Zones 2, 3 and/or 4. Please refer to the St. Anns Bank MPA Regulations for further details or contact your local fishery officer if you have questions about permitted or prohibited activities in this area.

The attached map includes the coordinates of the MPA and zones, and a brief description of which fisheries are permitted in each zone.
