Diana Trager, groundfish coordinator at the DFO's regional headquarters in Vancouver, credits a 2001 report by the Sierra Club of B.C. (SCBC) with spurring the reform process.

"The new plan called for 100-per-cent monitoring of all fish caught in commercial groundfish fisheries," Trager says."What that meant in practical terms was that skippers had two choices.They could either pay to have a DFO-approved person on board their boats to literally watch and record everything brought over the side or discarded back into the ocean.Or they could pay to have a camera put on board their vessel."
Trager figured that the costs were about $400 a day to put a DFO person on a vessel and $140 a day for a monitoring camera.
As Trager says, every commercial groundfish fishery in 2006 stayed within catch limits for its target species - for example, halibut boats did not exceed their quotas for halibut - and within overall catch limits for the other fish they caught."It's amazing," Trager says.
Thanks to Brian Mose, Vicky Husband, Diana Trager and others, a stale doomsday environmental narrative has been broken.
Diana Trager, groundfish coordinator for the DFO's Pacific Region, says that in the event TACs for individual fish species are dramatically reduced, there is the possibility that entire fleets could be kept from fishing.The more likely scenario, however, is that individual boats would be forced to adapt to lower harvest rates and change their fishing methods, times and locations.
"It's up to the fishermen to tailor their operations or figure out how to get the maximum number of fish out of the water while staying within their TACs," Trager says.

Diana Trager, the DFO regional groundfish coordinator, denied the ministry has cancelled any possible lingcod season, saying no decision has yet been made.Remember, the lingcod is still in recovery in the Strait of Georgia," she added.Lingcod has made a healthy rebound since the commercial catch was banned in 1991, but in DFO eyes it,s still on shaky ground.Even before the 2002 recreational ban, the catch was restricted to four months of the year, at a maximum of 10 fish per angler.
