Hello, I’m Steve Veloso owner operator of Island Pursuit Sport Fishing in Comox B.C.
My family has generations of fishing history in the Comox Valley and the west coast of Canada. My grandparents own the local fish market in town, my father is a well-known commercial fisherman and I have had Island Pursuit for 16 years.
I grew up and started fishing during the 90’s when many of the salmon stocks were at a low. Over the last 10 years we have seen such an amazing increase in the health of the Salish Sea and salmon stocks. I am now a fully committed sport fishing company owner with 3 vessels and operate year-round. We are in a time where science is at the forefront of DFO decisions. I want to be a part of providing good data to show people what we are experiencing, help understand how we can maintain the ecosystem and, of course, provide excellent salmon fishing experiences for years to come.
