New Salmon Regulations - somewhat confusing
« on: April 02, 2021, 01:58:06 PM »

Hi all,  I'm hoping to get some insights into why DFO has used three different descriptions of what is allowed related to Chinook fishing in our local tidal waters starting April 1st. 
   FN0345 https://www-ops2.pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/fns-sap/index-eng.cfm?pg=view_notice&DOC_ID=244051&ID=all and
   FN0349 https://www-ops2.pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/fns-sap/index-eng.cfm?pg=view_notice&DOC_ID=244077&ID=all

Keeping in mind: the species that are actually available and/or open, and the mortality related to Catch and Release, why:
 - some areas No Fishing for Salmon, and
 - some areas No Fishing for Chinook, and
 - some areas Chinook Non-Retention

Shouldn't they all be the same?
