television exposure, and fishing derbies have spread the news and brought
hundreds of anglers to New Brunswick, as well as creating new enthusiasm about
sport among New Brunswick residents.
During the last few
decades, New Brunswick's sport fishery has faced many challenges to its
continuing health. Pollution, habitat, over fishing, and acid rain combined
with government funding cutbacks have reduced stocking programs and the
numbers of officers enforcing conservation laws.

catch and release, supporting community fisheries involvement programs and
educating our young anglers are crucial to this process. So, as the months
pass by, think conservation and enjoy angling.
