Salmon & Halibut Fishing BC, Vancouver Island A tidal waters sport fishing license is required to fish, spearfish or net, or to capture any species of finfish or shellfish. Annual licenses are valid from date shown on license to the following March 31. Licenses of a shorter duration expire at midnight on the final day of validity. A license is not transferable and is not valid unless signed by the license holder. Licenses must be obtained in person, except that a parent may obtain a license for a child under age 16, and one may obtain a license for a spouse. Licenses must be produced on request by a fishery or conservation officer or guardian, so ensure you have your license with you while fishing.

A "resident" is a person who normally resides in Canada.

A salmon conservation stamp ($6.42) must be affixed to licenses held by anglers wishing to retain any species of Pacific salmon. Note that the stamp is an annual stamp.

Licenses are available province-wide from more than 500 vendors, including sporting goods stores, resorts, service stations, marinas, charter boat operators and department stores. For further information about licensing, call 604-666-0566 or click here for the BC Sport Fishing Guide.
