Updating the Commercial Salmon Allocation Framework

Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) is undertaking an initiative to update the current commercial salmon allocation framework. To help guide effective discussion and clearly indicate the purpose and scope of this initiative, the Department will engage with the Commercial Salmon Advisory Board (CSAB) and First Nations under the Terms of Reference.

This initiative is intended to address one element of the Mitigation Program to implement changes to the Chinook Chapter of the Pacific Salmon Treaty (PST) announced by the Department in 2010. This includes addressing the deficiencies in the current commercial salmon allocation framework that were identified by the CSAB and the Integrated Advisory Group (IAG) formed to provide advice on PST mitigation. Equally as important, this work is intended to improve the long term stability, certainty, and resilience of the commercial salmon allocation arrangements, and provide more flexibility to licence holders to make effective business decisions, and thereby better respond to uncertainty in salmon abundance and changing market conditions. Updating the commercial salmon allocation framework will occur within a broader strategic context in which there are a range of current and anticipated management considerations influencing commercial salmon harvests.

Please read the Terms of Reference for this initiative.
