"We fish there all the time," McDonald said from his home base in False Creek, where he has operated for the past 20 years.

McDonald says the fishing grounds, especially the water to the west of the Lions Gate Bridge are fertile crab and prawn areas, representing tens of thousands of dollars worth of harvest for him a year.

"People would be shocked by the amount of healthy sea life down there," he said.

IN BRIEF - New rules approved for New England shrimp fishery, in case it ever reopens

Tuesday, October 24, 2017

New England’s shrimp fishery will be managed differently if it ever reopens.

Fishermen haven’t been allowed to catch Maine shrimp since 2013. But the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission approved a new set of restrictions for the fishery Thursday in the event it does one day reopen.

Fishermen used to catch the shrimp in Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts. The new restrictions include a requirement that shrimp trawlers use new gear to minimize the catch of small shrimp. There would also be maximum fishing season lengths, penalties for states that exceed quotas and a new state-by-state allocation program.

An arm of the commission is set to vote Nov. 29 2017 on whether the fishery can reopen next year.
