Government of New Brunswick

Until any further notice from the Department of Fisheries & Oceans (DFO), federal law requires that a valid salmon tag be affixed to any retained landlocked salmon that measures from 48 centimeters to 63 centimeters in fork length. For this reason, an Atlantic salmon retention licence, with valid tag(s) is required for an angler to retain landlocked salmon in this size range. Anglers wishing to retain landlocked salmon in the 48-63 cm length range must purchase a Licence Class 1, 2, 3, 7 or 8.
