Author Topic: understanding the fishing regulations
cagey

a lot of questions are asked with respect to the fishing regs or , worse yet, postings telling how they caught fish which they should have known were illegal.
while the members are always willing to say what the regs say or mean it is dangerous to rely on others who might not actually know what they are talking about.
The BEST way to know the correct answer is to ask the conservation department . the id is conservation.officer.service@gov.bc.ca
to ask a question put "Question" in the subject line then in the body of the email provide your name and phone number as well as details of the question. they guarantee a response within 5 business days. I have used the service on two occasions and received a response within 24 hours. the responses were very clear and fully explained.
if you need to speak to a conservation officer put "Contact" in the subject line then in the body your name , phone # and reason you need to talk to them. I have never used this service but expect it would get similar results. hope this is helpful to someone ! .

thanks cagey. that'll come in handy. I find it's sometimes pretty hard to get in touch with them. i'll be keeping this handy.

nice cagey , ty a lot , although I was lucky enough when dfo checked me , and I asked him quite a few questions , and I finally got really clear answers .

but I've also experienced CO's giving conflicting information. one says this is legal while the next says it is not. so, in some instances, their word isn't necessarily reliable. makes one truly scratch one's head sometimes.

that is the beauty of the email system. you have the answer in writing in case another co says otherwise .

mister moderator , if I asked right "conservation.officer.service@gov.bc.ca" answer from this e-mail is most accurate and will overwrite COs ?
sharphooks moderator

if I understand your question, Alex, if you enquired through the email id that cagey referred us to with a clear question and received an answer, I do not think any charges laid by a co in the field after that date would hold up.
