Byrne Asking DFO to Keep Enforcement until end of Salmon Angling Season

Fisheries Minister Gerry Byrne is asking for DFO to revisit its decision to end the 2017 federal Fishery Guardian Program in September.

Byrne wants DFO to keep fisheries enforcement until the end of the salmon angling season.

There were 157 fishing-related complaints of illegal activity this year.

The salmon angling season ends in October.
