Poachers: What to Do When You Witness Suspicious Activity

We all know how important it is to abide by the regulations. The regulations protect the species and the sport that we love.


It’s frustrating, to say the least, to know that those who don’t abide by the regs get away with it without consequence.

Do you know what to do when you witness or feel suspect of suspicious activity?


The Department of Fisheries and Oceans states:

“Did you witness suspicious fishing activity or a violation?


If so, please call the Fisheries and Ocean Canada 24-hour toll free Observe, Record, Report line at (800) 465-4336. For the 24 hour recorded opening and closure line, call toll free at (866) 431-FISH.”
