Opening Dates for Eel Fishery in Inland Waters
DFO reminds fish harvesters that the opening date for the commercial eel fishery in inland waters using eel pots is July 1, 2017.
The season will open to fyke nets on August 15, 2017.
The eel fishery for all gear types will close on October 31, 2017.
Fish harvesters are reminded that closures due to environmental conditions on scheduled salmon rivers will result in closure of the eel fishery on these rivers. During the closures, fish harvesters will be permitted to leave the fyke nets in the rivers. However, the bag on the end of the net must be removed to permit the escapement of salmonids and eels.
