    If guys like Sculpin continue to post and brag about your Tuna haul, we will have regulations sooner, rather that later.
    How does a 4 fish limit on Tuna sound!
    I am not sure but DFO may only have control over the initial 24 miles offshore, but

    I could be mistaken though.

    It would appear DFO may have control over 370.4 Km from the shoreline.

    More research should be done.

    Exclusive economic zone

    An exclusive economic zone extends from the outer limit of the territorial sea to a maximum of 200 nautical miles (370.4 km) from the territorial sea baseline, thus it includes the contiguous zone.[3] A coastal nation has control of all economic resources within its exclusive economic zone, including fishing, mining, oil exploration, and any pollution of those resources. However, it cannot prohibit passage or loitering above, on, or under the surface of the sea that is in compliance with the laws and regulations adopted by the coastal State in accordance with the provisions of the UN Convention, within that portion of its exclusive economic zone beyond its territorial sea. Before 1982, coastal nations arbitrarily extended their territorial waters in an effort to control activities which are now regulated by the exclusive economic zone, such as offshore oil exploration or fishing rights (see Cod Wars). Indeed, the exclusive economic zone is still popularly, though erroneously, called a coastal nation's territorial waters.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Territorial_waters

    Still the amount of boats brave enough to venture that far really don't even interest DFO I'm sure. Now if every boat was able to get tuna they'd probably try and find a way to capitalize.

    I doubt they would also waste time, money, and resources sending out their inflatables, 60 miles offshore to catch a few boats with one or two more tuna on board than allowed, considering the Tuna isn't really a native species to BC itself. I guess it depends on the markets globally whether Harper would direct the goons to do anything, and I'm guessing the Asian markets want Tuna much larger than these.

    Damn those commies anyways wiping out all the fish. Nice to see the sportie commies just taking what they need : ) Is there a difference between traditional commies and sportie commies? One group does alot of preaching and finger pointing, the other just goes fishing, the fish still end up dead. It is a nice haul of fish though : ) , I wonder if they are selling any, hmmmm?

    I guess if you read the previous post you'd see that the photo is an American photo taken in the US, and not BC.
    I always found it pointless to make a comment if you didn't read all the posts previous.

    Ha ha no kidding. I'll add "our really expensive" 3 fish eh CS.


    The fishery is so accessible, easy, and inexpensive that those albacore should be worried.



    Right on Jeff. Glad to hear they had a safe trip and got into some fish.

    Question

    "Fogged In" My reply to your post on the other site:

    Your quote:
    This pic is why regs will come in soon for Tuna Fishing....hard to call Sports Fishing...eh
    These were caught this week. Mayabe you know this guy.
    My Reply:

    Regs already exist. The current limit is 20 per rod per day. Most that go are much more limited by their capacity to ice and hold fish for the return journey home.

    From what I can determine from the picture, there is ~ a 3 person limit laying on the dock. Either their rig had HUGE hold capacity, they packed a LOT of coffins, or they simply didn't bother with the icing requirement. It may also be a reflection of multiple boat efforts. Without the full details, I would be damn hesitant to judge!

    Sportfishing? Hell YEAH! Looks to me like a BRILLIANT day our on The Pond!
    As long as those involved have the capacity to process / freeze these in a timely fashion such that nothing gets wasted, I see no problem here (and of course there were sufficient anglers to assign the numbers to).

    EVERY single species DFO gets involved with "managing" soon begins to suffer under their somewhat twisted form of taking care of business. I, for one, sincerely hope they stay the hell out of tuna!

    Cheers,
    Nog
    Nice that you posted what you did there (http://www.fishingvancouverisland.or...-t1248-30.html) without noting this was a US catch or any of the other details. Guess that simply didn't sit well with your Agenda?

    Wondering...

    After reading this comment I called the comedy police and got this picture of onefish being taken down.
    Heard the judge gave him community service of 100 hours at the local hatchery.
    The hatchery volunteers have to watch him like a hawk as the only thing he knows is how to kill fish.
    Interesting concept for him putting something back after many years of just taking.
