    Subject: FN0072-Gwaii Haanas National Marine Conservation Area Reserve Closures - CORRECTION to FN0077 in 2011

    Correction to FN0077 in 2011: The descriptions of five of the six closed areas
    are corrected. Minor amendments to all areas except (6) SGang Gwaay should be
    noted.


    Following extensive consultation with interested parties, Parks Canada, in
    collaboration with the Council of the Haida Nation and Fisheries and Oceans
    Canada, established the Gwaii Haanas National Marine Conservation Area Reserve
    and Haida Heritage Site (Gwaii Haanas Marine Area) on June 17, 2010. The Gwaii
    Haanas Marine Area is located in the southern portion of Haida Gwaii (Queen
    Charlotte Islands) approximately 100 kilometres off the north coast of British
    Columbia. The Gwaii Haanas Marine Area was established to ensure that
    protection, conservation and sustainable use opportunities are mutually
    achieved. The Marine Area comprises 3,500km2 of water and seabed adjacent to
    the existing Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve and Haida Heritage Site.

    As part of the establishment process, Parks Canada, the Council of the Haida
    Nation and Fisheries and Oceans Canada developed an Interim Management Plan and
    Zoning Plan for the Gwaii Haanas Marine Area. This plan identifies six areas
    described below which are closed to commercial and recreational fishing.
    Development of a long term management plan for the Gwaii Haanas Marine Area is
    scheduled to be completed by 2015 and will take place in consultation with the
    commercial and recreational fishing sectors through the Department's
    established integrated fishery planning and advisory processes.

    Commercial fishing activities within the Gwaii Haanas Marine Area will be
    managed through the Integrated Fisheries Management process. Annual fishing
    plans will be developed in consultation with stakeholders and specific actions
    (openings and closures) for the Gwaii Haanas Marine Area will be taken under
    the authority of the Fisheries Act and its regulations.

    Commercial and recreational fishers and harvesters are reminded that the areas
    within the Gwaii Haanas Marine Areas described below are closed to fishing:

    Yes a joint effort is always the way to go if both parties can agree on the best way to manage for all groups involved.

    I think we had seen a post from one of the salty guys up in this area who felt this would not be good for the sports industry in those parts. I would be interested in how they figure this will enhance or kill their businesses.
    I do see that alot of the named areas are classified as "estuary" so maybe this does not effect the sports guys to much in a negative matter?
    i fish therefor i am
