Now that I think of it, fish are one type of animal that we can keep as pets AND serve as dinner! I guess we use different species for each role...
British Columbia is great even if you don't fish, by the way. The kayaking and sailing are amazing, and the weather will blow your mind, especially late summer and early fall. They vacation there well into September.
I caught me a cod once up there. Also a dogfish, which is like a shark, which my dad released.
