You must must use barbless hooks when fishing

Sportfishing in Alberta is limited to barbless hooks – part of the province’s plan to improve Alberta’s fisheries by reducing hooking injuries and related stress on released fish. While most fisherman don’t need much of an excuse to buy new tackle, there is no need to replace all those hooks in your tackle box – anglers simply need pliers to pinch down existing barbed hooks. Refer to the Alberta Sportfishing Regulations for more information.
