Rockfish Conservation Areas

Scuba fishThe Department and Fisheries of Oceans designated over 100 sites on the BC coast as rockfish conservations areas. One of these sites has been established between Maude Reef and Savoie Rock on the west side of Hornby Island within Lambert Channel. Within this area any type of fishing that would impact on rock fish is prohibited. It is purported that the rockfish colony at this location is a risk. As a reminder to local fisherman, CHI posted posters at the marina and other appropriate locations.
