Subject: FN1039-Area 18: Change in dates for Finfish Closure and Coho Opportunity

Effective immediately until 23:59 hours December 31, 2013, you may retain two
(2) coho salmon per day (hatchery marked or wild) in those waters of Subarea 18-
8 inside a line from a fishing boundary sign near Separation Point on Vancouver
Island to a white boundary sign on Wilcuma Wharf.

Effective immediately until 23:59 hours October 31, 2013, you may not retain
chinook salmon inside a line from a fishing boundary sign near Separation Point
on Vancouver Island to a white boundary sign on Wilcuma Wharf.

Note: These measures replace a finfish closure that was previously in effect
in these waters.

Variation Order Numbers: 2013-483 to 2013-487 inclusive

Note:
Barbless hooks are required when fishing for salmon in tidal and non-tidal
waters of British Columbia.

The term "hatchery marked" means a fish that has a healed scar in place of the
adipose fin.

Sport anglers are encouraged to participate in the Salmon Sport Head Recovery
program by labeling and submitting heads from adipose fin-clipped chinook and
coho salmon. Recovery of coded-wire tags provides critical information for
coast-wide stock assessment. Contact the Salmon Sport Head Recovery Program
toll free at (866) 483-9994 for further information.

Rockfish Conservation Areas that are currently in effect and are closed to all
fin fishing. Descriptions of these closures, and other recreational fishing
information, can be found on the Internet at:
