    close season

    Dear teachers,

    Would you tell me whether I am right about my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    If any of these game fish are to stay in these lakes, there’ll have to be a close season for years to give them a chance to catch up. (J. Aldrige, “The Hunter”)

    close season = the space of time when there is no permission to hunt

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V
