The Barton Court fish pond is one of the busiest places in the province for fishermen, with more than 200 fish being caught every year.
A group of fishers is hoping to use a drone to capture the fish that they catch.
The group is looking to use drones to catch the sharks that they caught earlier this year.
The sharks are often seen in the pond as they swim through the water, with many of them appearing to be at least 15 metres long and weighing as much as a large boat.
“There are a lot of sharks in this pond.
We have seen many, many sharks,” said James Beattie, who works with the Fraser River Fishery.
Beattie is one in a team of fishery workers, who are using the drone to get a close-up look at some of the more common sharks.
“You could be up on the top of a boat and the top would be like a big shark,” he said.
“It’s a little bit like the way a dog bites a cat.”
Beatties team also uses a laser to help them spot sharks, while he said they have seen some large fish that were actually 30 metres long.
Beard, a biologist, says they are just looking for sharks that are too big to get away with by fishing.
“That’s what they call it, the ‘big fish’,” he said of the large fish.
“A lot of times, if they are caught in the same spot and there is no way of identifying them, we’ll put the drone on the drone and see if we can see them,” he explained.
The Fraser River Fisheries says they don’t have a specific drone program, but they will try to get someone to fly a drone near the pond.
They also say there are some species that will not be captured by the drone, but if they can identify them, they can be sold.
