View Full Version : re register in BC , Canada

You will all be happy to learn that there is a factory stern drag boat/ factory processor off the coast of Fort Ross that is registered in BC Canada. It is great that where we can not fish the Canadians are welcome. Look at the AIS Data page and see where the ships and foreign fish boats are for your self. This factory ship has been making passes at the coast from south of Pt Arena.

US registered Vessels are prohibited from operating in these waters. By the AIS data this vessel has violated the 3 mile fishing rules for the area and has intruded into the MLPA areas repeatedly. Good job for the DFG , but they have very little to do with the non US flagged boats and have never had an active role in preventing this type of intrusion into our coastal waters.

I'm glad that the fish are being reserved for the foreign producers , so that we can buy them later from the super markets here. It makes for a better living for the off shore community from Canada.

Have I said enough?

Best from Ron on the LuLuBelle
