That is good news. I don't Salmon fish, but hopefully this is one step forward in helping Salmon numbers to recover to the point where I'd someday feel comfortable in joining in on the experience.

Sorry, I worded that strangely. Have they also changed the limit of how many can be caught and released in a day?

This species needs all the help it can get.

 

Now about this aquaculture issue? :rolleyes:  (Sorry)

 

Great move and good news.

Absolutely you do! Many of us are catch and release only fishermen already, but we still need a licence.

Pardon my pessimism but, as usual, with government regulation, Elvis has probably left the building for good and it's a day late and a dollar short,,,,,,,  On the other hand, this aquaculture thing..........and the continued depletion of Gaspareau and Shad stocks by commercial netting.......Now there are some things which are doable and might actually make a beneficial difference..

Agreed! I was at a meeting yesterday and the diminished stock of gaspereaux was noted and the dissaperance of stripers and salmon from the Annaplois River and the possibility that things are connected. The lack of concern by both levels of Gov.is disturbing!

Well, we're about 20 years to late to start talking about the baitfish. How long of a process it would be to stop commercial fishing for fish like gaspys herring and mack? I'm all for it but you think "Our" Gouv is going to protect those fishes, when they wouldn't even protect the greatest of all our fish? Your just lucky your older and won't see the demise of our bait fish. It will be a reality for many young anglers and Time is one of those things that creeps up on you and is not reversible. Wish a fishermen was our Leader instead of these money hungry non caring anti-conservationist.

  You know Perry, your old as time anyways ;) Might as well take a few of those bastards out on your way up to see the big guy lol j/k
