Public input welcomed for freshwater fishing regulations

Feedback must be provided to the Province by Jan. 11

The public is invited to provide feedback on proposed changes to fishing regulations for the 2019-2021 Freshwater Fishing Regulations Synopsis, the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development announced this week.

A complete list and description of the proposed regulations can be viewed at: https://apps.nrs.gov.bc.ca/pub/ahte

The proposals include changes to fishing methods, gear, bait, quotas, boundaries and fishery opening and closing dates. These changes are based on regional requirements and conditions, and aim to meet management objectives for native and invasive fish species, while maintaining sustainable angling opportunities for recreational fishers.

Comments must be received by Friday, Jan. 11, 2019. After final decisions have been made, the Freshwater Fishing Regulations Synopsis will be posted online in mid-March: http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/fw/fish/regulations/#Synopsis

Comments will be considered in the final review. The approved changes will be in effect on April 1, 2019.
