    I like to fish the Broughtons, where it seems that many of the best fishing areas are in or near Rockfish Conservation Areas [RCA's]. When I upgraded my 1990s Lowrance in 2017, I was amazed at the charting, but disappointed that the charts didn't include the RCA's.

    After a bit of conversation with DFO's Brad Beaith and tech support at Navionics, it was clear that everyone was willing. The last word was this message from Navionics:

    Hopefully this will be helpful to those of you using Navionics charts, and act as a spur to CMAP to follow.
