Yukon/Transboundary Rivers Area Consultations

The Yukon/Transboundary Rivers Area encompasses the Yukon, Stikine, Taku and Alsek River Drainages as well as portions of the MacKenzie River Drainage in south east Yukon.

Fisheries management in this area takes place at several jurisdictional levels (international, transboundary, territorial and Yukon First Nation). Fisheries and Oceans Canada consults with First Nations, commercial and recreational fishers to help ensure that management decisions at each level effectively address the interests and preferences of Canadians.
