I was wondering if anyone has a link to the online salwater fishing regs? I was mostly concerned with the shark fishing regulations/liscensing.

Thanks alot

I checked the link to your post lobsterman but i was not able to find a link within that had the summary of regs for saltwater and shark, just that there has been a change to the already existing one.

Thank you fishon i have been looking for that summary for awhile, it has helped in understanding the inland rules.

Still looking for the saltwater summary, if its out there.

There are no regs online for sharkfishing. It is fairly straight forward, CATCH & RELEASE ONLY, they must be caught with rod and reel, and now, you MUST report all catches.

The licence is $10 bucks plus tax and they send a copy of the conditions with the licence.

Im still looking for groundfish regulations that are online if anyone knows of the link.

In regards to the shark, are liscenses attached to the individual person, or are they attached to the boat/captain. Reason being me and another guy from work are doing a tournament and im trying to get up too speed on rules and regs before hand.

Thanks

You will be my hero if you can find any recreational saltwater fishing regs online for NS!!!!! I have spend countless hours searching the WWW with NO luck at all.


The shark licence is for the individual person/fisherman.

When you say you are doing a tournament, does it mean you are fishing in the tournament, or you are organizing a tournament?

After spending a few minutes on the phone i have found out, There are NO RECREATIONAL SALTWATER REGS online, the guy said the easiest way is to find where you want to go fishing and give them a call and they will give you the latests information.

It's unfortunate that there isn't really any recreational saltwater industry in NS. I get really worked up watching my cousins in BC post their crab, shrimp, salmon (not caught with a flyrod), halibut, etc. photos on Facebook. We in NS are really missing out!

Hey Jay,
here in Atlantic Canada is most likely one of the only places in the world where Saltwater Sportfisherman have no access to the resources in the ocean!! I am sure that you will have more access to recreational saltwater angling when you move to Ghana, in West Africa than we have here in NS.

Here we are, in the 21st century, with the technology we have in todays world, and the Gov. cant even provide a single web page for the "FEW" regulations for saltwater angling here in NS????????

The reasoning behind it was due too the constant changes in laws, and the opening and closing of areas constantly, that it was more efficient to not post them too a website.

LMFAO........................it seems to me that it would be "MORE EFFICIENT" to have a single employee/webmaster post them on a website, that way they could be accessed 24-7 by those who need them! I wonder how many employees they have to answer the phone calls? And the way it is now, you can only call between the hours of 8am to 4pm!!!

DFO Maritimes and Gulf could learn a thing or two from their Pacific counterpart: Saltwater Fishing Regulation

If the Pacific region can do this, surely the Maritimes and Gulf regions can also come up with something similar. They are, after all, in the same federal department for crying out loud!

I think they do not want any recreational fishing around the coast so the commercial guys can plunder the stocks without anyone seeing them or noticing the catch rate going down and then blame the government, the Spanish or who ever they can think of, but not them selves as they are so responsible and the real custodians of the seas.
