Obviously DFO’s conservation concern for early run Fraser Chinook is a farce.
We should use First Nations tactics, if they are fishing we are fishing.

Don't worry guys....there are lots of meetings and protests going on.....and in 30 years of this, we all remember all the times we've been able to influence DFO.....
Oh wait......that number is freaking 'ZERO'.....We can't influence DFO, because they don't give a you know what about us....not 30 years ago, and not today....nothing has changed....and nothing will.

Is it freaking zero? My mind is fuzzy on the details but didn't DFO listen to recreational anglers and open the previously closed Fraser River sockeye fishery to recreational angling in the mid 1990s?

Yes and no. I mostly remember the time you are mentioning and it is a complicated explanation....but they did NOT outright give us what we asked for....and by the time they reopened it the sockeye were mostly in spawning colors. We were shutdown during the prime of the late Adams run...and it was ALL politics....no science behind it whatsoever.

Edit.....I'm pretty sure you were talking about the 1994 season.

Looks like Long Liner Seafoods at Granville Island. Did you post the photo because there aren't open commercial opportunities, or because the price is high, or because they use the word "rare" in poor taste? Genuinely asking, not trying to stir up arguments ;)

the only legal source they could of came from is the Albion test fishery, that may be the case i'm sure will find out pretty fast.

That's assuming the tag on the case is truthful. Could the fish at Long Liner have come from Washington? Or Alaska? Has anyone called them to ask where they got the fish? Has anyone contacted DFO? The media? If there are definitely no legal ways to have gotten the fish, seems pretty straightforward to get them to stop selling it.
