At Naden Lodge we feel a responsibility to protect the salmon and halibut stocks that the north coast has been blessed with. This starts with exhibiting good sportsmanship and conservation and ends with ensuring that those fish retained are handled with care and respect to ensure the product that ends up on your dinner table is the best it can be.
Scientific studies conducted on Haida Gwaii have shown that released fish have a greater than 85 percent chance of survival if properly handled and revived. To help aid in the conservation of fish stocks, we will again this year be offering an incentive to all of our guests to encourage them to voluntarily reduce their retention limits and to release trophy fish.
Here is How it Works:
Each of our boats is equipped with a measuring tape and weight chart to allow a guest releasing a fish the opportunity to determine its weight. The weight charts use a formula based on the length and girth of a fish and have been found to be very accurate.
