Under an agreement signed between the Province and the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC in 2015, 100 per cent of the revenue generated from fishing licences directly benefits recreational fisheries. That’s right, every penny goes into research, conservation and education programs, improving angler access and our stocking program. The Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation receives 100 per cent of the surcharge revenue collected from angling licence sales to provide grants for fish conservation projects.
