Our local area waters are watched by other boaters, the RCMP Marine division, and the DFO surveillance sources. It’s just sometimes better to hire a fishing guide and then relax and fish.
Most guides are professional skilled and trained to know their job. Most professional guides are Transport Canada licensed and commercial insured. We study hard to know the regulations and stay informed in the commercial development of the regulations of our industry.
Changes to the regulations which include closures for salmon species and ground fish Cod species.
British Columbia have 37 species of rockfish. They are caught in fisheries off the coast, plus inshore rockfish species.
This includes: Yelloweye, Quillback, Copper, China, and Tiger. These fish are normally caught with a hook and line gear, in rocky reef habitats.
Monitoring and research programs in B.C. indicate that inshore rockfish are at low levels of abundance. This is especially within the inland waters of Vancouver Island,
Fisheries and Oceans Canada needs your help. We are working to protect and conserve inshore rockfish.
In 2002 the D.F.O. started the “catch restrictions” and “fishery monitoring” and created “stock assessment programs”. The D.F.O. implemented (Rockfish Conservation Areas,RCAs) which are established throughout the B.C. coast.
