Notice to all recreational fishers

We are currently updating our online data for the 2017-2018 fishing season. While this work is underway, regulations on the BC Sport Fishing Guide website are frozen and may not apply beyond March 31, 2017. Bivalve contamination information is not included in this freeze and will continue to update.

If you are fishing after March 31, 2017 it is important that you check our Fishery Notice System for up to date information about fishing limits and management measures as decisions are made.

We appreciate your patience as we carry out these seasonal updates.

Bivalve shellfish

Bivalve shellfish (and snails)

Before harvesting bivalve shellfish from this area learn about when and where you can harvest. You’re responsible for understanding the restrictions that may affect an open fishery.

Step 1: marine biotoxin and sanitary contamination closures

  • Check for contamination in the subarea where you plan to harvest.

Bivalve shellfish have two hinged shells. Because they feed by filtering microscopic plankton from the water, changes in water quality can cause unsafe marine biotoxins, bacteria, or viruses to build up in their tissue. Snails can also accumulate toxins and pollutants.

Step 2: species regulations and restrictions

Area closures indicate regular restrictions or closures related to a protected area (sponge reef closure, MPA, RCA). The glossary explains all terms used to describe restrictions.

The contamination table displays current closures only. A full list of seasonal sanitary closures for this area is available.

Restrictions

Species Areas Measure Type Measure Value
Crab, All Species Combined Coastwide Gear Restriction You may use up to two rings, dip nets or traps in combination. Traps must be marked with floating tag or buoy that has your name on it. This includes traps tied to a boat or dock or fished from shore. Use highly visible buoys, large enough to stay afloat in tides and currents in your fishing area. Only one name can appear on the buoy attached to your trap(s). Names and phone numbers must be legible and visible (at least 7.5 cm high). DO NOT USE: Gear marked with another fisher"s name. Avoid plastic jugs, bottles and Styrofoam blocks that may deteriorate or sink, or are hard to see or mark. All single traps must be marked with a buoy. If two crab traps are attached to one ground line, you are allowed to mark the ground line with only one buoy. Make sure your buoy line doesn"t float and become tangles in boaters" props. Either use sinking line or, if you use floating line, attach a weight to keep the extra line under the water at all tide levels (without sinking the buoy). Use of snares, rakes, spears or other pointed instruments to fish for crab is illegal.
Reminder Keep navigation channels clear of buoys and lines. Any fishing gear that interferes with safe navigation can be removed under the Navigation Protection Act.
Crab, All Species Combined Coastwide Gear Restriction All crab traps must have a section in the top or sidewall that has been secured by a single length of untreated cotton twine no greater than No. 120 (approximately 5 mm or 3/16 inch diameter). This twine is often referred to as rot cord. On deterioration this must produce a rectangular opening with a minimum size of 7 cm x 20 cm, or a square opening with a minimum size of 11 cm x 11 cm. This regulation is intended to ensure that if the trap is lost, the section secured by the cord will rot, allowing captive crabs to escape, and preventing the trap from continuing to fish. On traps with a rigid frame and a freely opening hinged lid the trap lid must be secured by a single length of untreated cotton twine no greater than No. 120 so that the trap lid will open freely when the rot cord is broken. No other fastenings may impede the hinged lid of the trap from opening.
12 Reminder Combined daily limit for Dungeness crab, red rock crab, box crab, Puget Sound king crab and all other king crab is 4
12-19 Gear Restriction Nimpkish Estuary (portion of Subarea 12-19) June 15 to September 14: Daily limit for all crab species combined is two. Only dip nets, ring nets or hand picking permitted to harvest crab.
Reminder Those waters near the Nimpkish River inside a line that begins at a boundary sign 1.5 km easterly of Broad Pt, then continues to navigation aid N17, then to a boundary sign located easterly of Willow Creek then to the beginning point.
Crab, Dungeness Coastwide Packaging and Transporting In order to be accurately measured, the carapace of Dungeness crab that you catch must remain attached until the crab arrives at your residence or it is consumed.
Sex Restriction It is prohibited to possess female Dungeness crabs
Crab, Red Rock Coastwide Packaging and Transporting In order to be accurately measured, the carapace of Red Rock crab that you catch must remain attached until the crab arrives at your residence or it is consumed.
Sex Restriction It is prohibited to possess female Red Rock crabs.
