The data is collected through the BC Freshwater Fishing e-Licencing system and includes sales of basic angling licences, classified waters licences and conservation surcharges. Sales are summarized by:
- Residency: Angler residency type (Resident or Non-Resident)
- Product Type: Category of licence type
- Licence Type: Description of licence
- Licence Year (LY): April 1 - March 31 (e.g. LY2010 is April 1, 2010 - March 31, 2011)

Data Quality

Residency:
- Resident data represents licence sales for BC residents.
- Non-Resident data includes licence sales for non-residents (outside of BC) and non-resident aliens (outside of Canada).
- Classified Waters licences for non-residents are sold on a per day basis. Licence sales for non-resident Classified Waters are reported as total number of days sold, rather than individual licences sold.
