Fisheries Minister Hunter Tootoo hears about salmon catch ban


Fisheries and Oceans Minister Hunter Tootoo expected to hear about the federal government's ban on killing salmon caught in Maritime waters during a visit to New Brunswick.

Tootoo visited Moncton on Friday to fishery stakeholders, First Nations leaders, provincial Fisheries Minister Rick Doucet and others.

Last April, the federal department imposed a mandatory hook-and-release program for all salmon caught in Maritime rivers, meaning no anglers could keep any salmon caught.
