    Some of the wording from the Vancouver Port Authority's proposed amendment (www.portvancouver.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/09-08-2017-NOTICE-OF-AMENDMENT-_-PORT-INFORMATION-GUIDE.pdf):


    “For safety reasons, vessels engaged in fishing, personal watercraft such as jet skis, row boats, canoes and vessels, sailing or proceeding without mechanical power, are not permitted within the boundaries of First Narrows MRA (MRA - 1), Second Narrows MRA (MRA - 2) and all areas of Vancouver Harbour in between. Fishing, sailing and other non - powered recreational activity is permitted only in designated areas outside of the boundaries of MRA - 1, MRA - 2 and Vancouver Harbour, for example west of the MRA - 1 western boundary or east of the MRA - 2 eastern boundary.”

    “Fishing or the use of fishing - related equipment (including crab - by - trap) is prohibited within the boundaries of First Narrows MRA (MRA - 1), Second Narrows MRA (MRA - 2) and all areas of Vancouver Harbour in between.”
