Banner image: Aquatic Species At Risk

A draft of the Management Plan, along with a discussion guide and feedback form, was made available online via the DFO Pacific Region Consultation website for a public comment period from June 30 to July 30, 2014. This consultation was primarily web-based, but included mail-outs, emails and faxes to coastal First Nations to solicit input and feedback on the draft Management Plan and offering an opportunity to meet bilaterally with DFO. Notification of the consultation period was also sent by electronic mail to the Province of British Columbia, interested stakeholders, environmental interest groups, and several Departmental advisory committees.

No feedback forms were received. One request was received for information concerning the location and distribution of the species.

Right Whale - DFO Cetacean Research Program

Between 1951 and 2013, not a single North Pacific Right Whale was seen in Canadian waters. It is estimated that there are currently less than 50 of these Endangered whales in the eastern North Pacific Ocean. But on June 9, 2013, a DFO biologist had the experience of a lifetime, sighting a North Pacific Right Whale off the west coast of Haida Gwaii.
