[Extract from The Canada Gazette of Saturday,
May 17, 1919.]
[859]
AT THE GOVERNMENT HOUSE AT OTTAWA.
Thursday, the 24th day of April, 1919.
PRESENT:
HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR GENERAL
IN COUNCIL.
WHEREAS the Acting Minister of the Naval Service
reports as follows :—
Owing to changed conditions in British Columbia,
due to returning soldiers being anxious to engage in the
salmon fishing industry, it has been found necessary
to have some modifications made in the Special Fishery
Regulations for the Province.
Paragraph (a) of subsection 1 of section 8 of the said
regulations, reads as follows :—
" No license shall be granted to any person, company
or firm unless such person is a British subject,
resident in the Province of British Columbia, or
is a bona fide settler who has pre-empted or purchased land, or to such company or firm, unless it
is a Canadian company or firm, or is licensed to
do business in British Columbia."
Certain Japanese who had been residing in tire province previous to the war, but who had not become naturalized, went to the front with the C.E.F. Some of these
have returned and are anxious to engage in salmon,
fishing this year, but they cannot have their naturalization papers completed before the fishing season
comes on. It is considered reasonable that such persons should be permitted to engage in the salmon fisheries, and it is therefore, necessary to amend the above
quoted regulation,—
Therefore His Excellency the Governor General in
Council under the provisions of section 45 of The Fisheries Act, chapter 8 of the Statutes of 1914, is pleased
to order that paragraph (a) of subsection 1 of section 8
of the Special Fishery Regulations for the Province of
British Columbia, adopted by Order in Council of the
9th February, 1915, shall be and the same is hereby
rescinded; and the following is substituted in lieu
thereof :—
" (a) No license shall be granted to any person, company or firm, unless such person is a British subject, resident in the Province of British Columbia
or is a returned soldier who has served in His
Majesty's Canadian Navy or Army overseas, or is
a bona fide settler who has pre-empted or purchased land, or to such company or firm unless it
is a Canadian company or firm or is authorized by
the Provincial Governm nt to do business in the
Province."
 r*
And whereas paragraph (6) of subsection 3 of section
8 of the said regulations reads as follows :—
"(6) In the following districts not more than the
number of boats stated opposite their names shall
be licensed :—
Naas River Di-trict 240 boats
Skeena River District 850    "
Butedale District   60    "-
*BeJ.la Coola District   70    "
Dean Channel District    80    "
Namu District     40    "
Rivers Inlet District' 700    "
Smith Inlet District 115    "
*Bella Coola District for 1919 only. . . 100    "
(O.C. March 19, 1919."
And whereas the Minister further reports that a
reasonable portion of these licenses will be reserved for
returned soldiers until June 1, by which date final
arrangements must be made for the issuing of all the
licenses authorized, to avoid embarrassment in carrying on the industry ;
That it is however, considered desirable to provide
that such soldiers who may not apply for licenses
before June 1, or who may return from overseas to
the province after that date, may be granted licenses
if they desire such, and
That to do this, it w.ll be necessary to i-.sue a greater
number of licenses for the area affected than that specified in the above quoted regulation,—
Therefore His Excellency in Council, under the
above cited authority is further pleased to order that
paragraph (b) of subsection 3 of section 8 of the said
legislations shall be and the same is hereby amended
by adding thereto the following proviso :—
"Provided that persons who have served with
" His Majesty's-  Canadian   Navy   or Army
" overseas, who return to British Columbia,
" may be granted licenses in any of the above
" areas over and above the numbers specified
" for such area."
And whereas the issuing of additional licenses wiP
involve more fishing, and as the information before
the Department of the Naval Service indicates that the
salmon fisheries will not stand heavier fishing than has
been carried on in the past, it is deemed desirable to
extend the weekly close time so as to compensate in
protection of  the fisheries for the increased  fishing.
The existing weekly close time for salmon fishing m
Noithern   British   Columbia  is  thirty-six hours.    It
extends from Saturday at 6 a.m. to Sunday at 6 p.m.;
And whereas the Minister submits that as it is not
possible to know in advance how much additional fishing will be carried on, it is considered best to provide
a minimum extension of six hours,  and  to authorize
the local Fishery Officer to make it longer if sufficient
fish are not being allowed to pass beyond the nets to
sufficiently seed the spawning grounds,—
Therefore His Excellency in Council under the
above cited authority, is further,pleased to order that
the sai 1 regulations'shall be and the same are hereby
further amended as follows :—
1. Paragraph (b) of section 20 which paragraph was
adopted by Order in Council of March 30, 1917, and
amended by  Order in Council of  March 19, 1919, so
 r*
far as the Bella Coola District is concerned is hereby
rescinded, and the following is substituted in lieu
thereof :
"(6) In the waters north of the 51st parallel of
north latitude, the weekly close time for salmon
fishing shall be from Saturday at 4.00 a.m. to
Sunday at 10.00 p.m. : provided that in the waters
of District No. 3 the weekly close time for purse-
seine and drag-seine fishing shall be from Saturday noon to Sunday noon.
2. The said section is hereby further amended by
adding thereto the following paragraph,—
"(e) If the local Fishery Officer for any area find
that sufficient salmon are not passing beyond the
nets in such area to sufficiently seed the spawning
grounds adjacent thereto, he is hereby authorized
to require and enforce such longer close time any
week, or f om week to week, in such area as he
may deem necessary for such purpose.
3. The following section is hereby added to the said
Regulations :—
"20A. The local Fishery Officer may stop all salmon
fishing by purse- eines or drag-seines in any
portion of his district, for such time or from time
to time in addition to the weekly close time as he
deems necessary, to enable sufficient salmon to pass
to assure adequate seeding of the spawning grounds
adjacent thereto."

Clerk of the Privy Council.
