Canada’s new Fisheries Act and recreational fishing
Outdoor Canada is pleased to present Blue Fish Radio—podcasts about the future of fish and fishing in Canada. The program, produced and hosted by Lawrence Gunther, is dedicated to sharing first-hand angling knowledge, scientific discoveries and supporting local champions who protect and enhance their waters.
On June 21, 2019, Canada modernized its Fisheries Act, incuding new protections for fish and fish habitat in the form of standards, codes of practice and guidelines for projects near water. But what does this mean for recreational anglers?
In this episode, Blue Fish Radio producer/host Lawrence Gunther talks to Chad Ziai (above), the Director of Engagement, Partnerships and Integrated Planning at Fisheries and Oceans Canada, about what exactly anglers need to know about the new legislation.
