BOOST FOR NATIONAL RECREATIONAL FISHERIES

BOOST FOR NATIONAL RECREATIONAL FISHERIES
 OTTAWA, Oct. 2 /CNW/ - "The Tenth National Recreational Fisheries Conference is a turning point for the future of sport fishing and fisheries conservation in Canada," said Jim Hook, President of the Canadian Wildlife Federation (CWF) at the conclusion of the two-day event in Waterloo, Ontario.
 Boasting the largest turn out in the 20 year history of the conference, participants discussed the future of Canada's number one recreational pursuit - fishing - and the basis of one of the largest industries in the country. Anglers, businessmen, natives, scientists, conservation organizations, and bureaucrats from all levels of governments came from every province and territory to find solutions to declining fish stocks, water quality, and a host of other problems.
 "We didn't expect to solve national fisheries problems during a 2 day conference, but there is a feeling of optimism here that we (the recreational fisheries community) are finally getting our act together," stated Bob Bailey, Executive Director of the CWF's new National Recreational Fisheries and Aquatic Environments program. Conference delegates solidly endorsed a concept for a new national program to unite recreational interests across the country. "A national consensus on fisheries issues and a voice for Canada's six million anglers is long overdue," said Bailey.
