Author Topic: using fresh uncured roe

Smokin, I hope you read this post ! I knew I wasn't nuts !
About a year ago I made a comment that it was not considered proper to use fresh uncured roe in a different stream than it had been obtained from. I had read this some time ago, I thought in the fishing regs.
Well, it has been bugging me ever since and I have not been able to find what I recalled reading. I therefore contacted the Fish and Wildlife on their "question" email line. I posted the id some time ago. if anyone wants it let me know or check the archives.
Anyway, the response was , depending how you interpret the provincial Wildlife Act it may be illegal to use uncured roe . Fish is defined "and includes their eggs". As the Conservation Officer said to me in his response "Legalities aside, it is generally a bad idea to transport any material from one water body to another . Fish roe can carry disease (viral and bacterial) that could be introduced to the new water body through deposit. I think that from a conservation perspective it is better to cure and /or disinfect eggs prior to introducing them to another water body".
We do not want to poison our fish so everyone should keep this in mind.

Guess it makes sense. The only reason to use uncured roe is lets say if youre coho fishing, kill a doe and run outta bait but want to continue fishing. You would be using it in the same system it came from so no problem should arise

there is nothing better than fresh roe , just use it in the stream it was taken you say it makes sense.

Thanks for the helpful info.
