Fishing Vessels of B.C.

 

This only represents a fraction of the many vessels that fish, or have fished on the west coast. The first group will be all Seine Boats. These were the largest of the salmon boats. As with most boats on the coast many of these vessels may also have  held a license for another fishery other than salmon, such as Herring, Halibut, Black cod, or dragging .

This next group of pictures represents a small fraction of the Gill-net and troller fleet that has fished on the west coast. As with the seine fleet some but not many of these vessels had dual licences where they could earn a living fishing for other species of fish rather than just salmon. Later on with dual areas in the salmon sector, you had to have two salmon licences in order to fish in more than one area for salmon.
