Stop harvest before a fish population collapses

It's a good idea to stop fish retention until sustainable numbers are determined

Dear Sir:

Unlike the rest of the province, anglers in the north are fortunate to have reasonably good stream fishing.

This is the result of less residential and industrial development, fewer anglers and poor accessibility.

This is changing quickly and resulting in diminished catches. The provincial fisheries branch is proposing to stop the harvesting of stream living trout and char in our area.

The plan is to re-open the harvesting of trout, on a stream by stream basis, if sustainable fish numbers can be identified. What a unique approach to fish management i.e. stop the harvesting before a fish population collapses.
