THE LFTHSR1CGE HERALD MencJey, Dumber 18, 1972 Bad iveather and ice hamper first week of commercial fishing Commercial fishing is alive but not so in Southern Al- berta- For the past commer- cial Sshennen in foi> area have been active with their gill nets and other associated mass fish collecting parapher- Frani: Somerville. Let'nbridge district fish and Tiidlife offi- cer said the tinier fishing just Slashed en Big Chin Lake, soish of poor re- sulis. "Bad vresther and even worse ice kept the catches ha said. Commercial fishing in the winter here is aimed primarily at taking lake whiteush. which have a good cosunertia! mar- ket, explained Mr. Somerville. Waters inhabited by trout are usually not open to commercial Cskennec. he said. Winter gill netting of fish for commercial purposes starts as soon ss the ice is thick enough for the fishermen to walk safe- ly on it and continues until break-uD in the spring, he said. Statistics on the amount cf business done were unavail- able, but Mr. SoissrviUe told The Herald, "catches of up to 20.000 pounds of commercially usable fish are not unusual from larger lakes and reser- voirs in the area." The commercial fishing sea- sen has no specific time per- iod, but is controlled by select- ed openings and closures of f ishabie bodies of water throughout the winter. "TTe try to control the size of catch taken to what we think the market can handle at the time." he said. The control is handled by opening larger bodies cf -water vrhen it is felt bigger and more fish can be easily sold- "Open periods on lakes or reservoirs usually last for a week at a time, and the body of water may be opened for more than ore lime in a he saic. Commercial fishing in Alber- ta is controlled on a zone basis. There are seven zones in Al- berta. The commercial fishing zone in our area is Zone A. It ex- teads from Canmore, east to the Alberta Saskatchewan bor- der and south to the Canada- United -States border. Two commercial type fish- ing licences are available, fee covers fishing privileges for en entire zone and the other res- tricts fish taking to only one body of water. T zone licence costs the single body of water licence costs Restrictions are also put on the length of nets and the size cf the net mesh used, said Mr. Sonuerville. The smallest mesh opening al- lowed for a gill net in our Zone A is 4-i Inches. The stand- ard size used is inches and is no restriction on the use of larger naesh- SiThe length of net used var- ies from season to season and from body of water to body of water. Tee most popular lengths used are 400 to 600 yards ?.Ir. Scnierville. Gill nets work by catching the fish as it tries to swim through the mesh. The fish gets can't make the rest of its body its head through the mesh, but go through, when it tries to swim backwards its gills get tangled in the mesh. Standard mesh gill nets cost about per 100 foot length and catch fish a foot long and bigger. Other smaller fish can swim easily through the mesh.
