Nova Scotians can help ensure fishing regulations remain relevant and
effective by taking part in consultations throughout the province.
The meetings to discuss issues begin in Oxford on Tuesday, Nov. 5.
The Recreational Fishing Advisory Council meetings are held annually by
the Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture to share sportfishing
information, research and promote discussion.
"The sportfishing industry is valued at $58 million and attracted 70,000
licensed anglers in 2012," said Fisheries and Aquaculture Minister Keith
Colwell in a news release. "It's a healthy, outdoor activity which can be enjoyed at a
reasonable cost as a lifelong sport by young and old."
Feedback from past meetings brought regulations to help eliminate the
spread of invasive species.
There will be six Recreational Fishing Advisory Council meetings
throughout the province, from Nov. 5 to 14.
More information on angling and meeting dates can be found at
