Salmon angling seasons in all SFAs in the Maritimes Region (SFA 19-23) are closed due to conservation concerns with the exception of three rivers (Middle, Baddeck and North rivers) in SFA 19 (Cape Breton East).

In the Middle, Baddeck and North rivers, salmon anglers may only catch and release using single hook barbless artificial flies.

Changes to recreational salmon seasons and daily limits may be found in the Maritimes Orders Registry.
