agreed that the AGM be held April 12, Room 112, Haley Institute, NSAC. Dr
Jim Duston and/or Paul MacIsaac be asked to be special speaker. The Chair
and Dick Huggard will prepare the AGM agenda.
March Meeting - agreed to invite Beth Lenintine
to address CSA Directors on the DFO Fish Release program
Little River Work - armour rock and rip rap will
be installed along the River next spring. In preparation the material will
be hauled to the bank as soon as the road is improved and there is more
frost in the ground.
Striped Bass - Gary McMahon raised the issue
of potential damage by Bass to salmon fry and questioned what had been done
in the past two years. The quantity of Bass is also a problem for the Gaspereaux
harvesters. DFO should be contacted concerning the timing of salmon release
in the spring - perhaps it could be delayed. Suggest we ask Jim Disson to
address this issue at the AGM.
- NSSA Planning - NSSA has a planning process underway. Jan 22 there
is a strategic planning session at the NSAC to look at the future role. Can
NSSA be an angling and conservation organization? This session is open to
CSA Directors. NSSA Directors meet on Jan 23. Dick Huggard suggested that
CSA should consider his replacement on the NSSA Board for next year.
Fisherama Registered Education
Fund - Nelson Rogers asked for CSA
approval to continue the Fund and it was unanimously agreed to do so. The
Chair will confirm this by letter to Nelson.
