Will update with a link if I can find it later.


Key points

- They'd like a system similar to other provinces where rivers are color coded (you can keep 4 grilse on this green-coded one, one on that orange-coded one, etc.)

- Moratorium is for one year only at this time

- Minister was (understandably) vague when asked what the cause of the decline was. "We don't really know. We do know that our rivers are producing enough young, but something happens when they go out to sea."

Had to chuckle at the last point you wrote there.   The problem is well known, as it was for turbot, cod, and any number of other species that are in danger or no longer present.   The governments just don't have the balls to deal with it.    Not just this sad excuse for a federal government, it's been this way for decades.
