New 2019/2020 regulations for all British Columbia tidal waters

Hits: 1928

New 2019 / 2020 fishing regulations are in force for the BC coast tidal waters. Changes to the regulations which include closures, with salmon species and ground fish Cod species. There are 37 species of rockfish that are caught in fisheries off the coast of British Columbia. Inshore rockfish species (which include yelloweye, quillback, copper, china, and tiger) are usually caught with hook and line gear in rocky reef habitats. Monitoring and research programs in B.C. indicate that inshore rockfish, especially within the inland waters of Vancouver Island, are at low levels of abundance. Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) needs your help to protect and conserve inshore rockfish. Since 2002, catch restrictions, fishery monitoring, stock assessment programs, and Rockfish Conservation Areas (RCAs) have been established throughout the B.C. coast. DFO’s rockfish conservation strategy is designed to alleviate further rockfish population declines. Within RCAs, inshore rockfish are protected from all mortality associated with recreational and commercial fisheries.

About Captain Al

I've been fishing in the oceans since I was 14 years old. I thoroughly love fishing and catching record sized Salmon and Cod. Some 45 years later I'm teaching others to fish and enjoy the nature of the oceans. I started catching Salmon and Ling Cod in record sizes in the Port Alberni canal and Bamfield area at 14 years old. My parents owned a 14 foot aluminum boat so I'd head out every chance to enjoy all I could catch. 45 lb Springs were common in those areas.
