The Pacific Region Red Sea Urchin Integrated Fisheries Management Plan is updated yearly and encompasses the period of August 1 to July 31. The plan is written as an Integrated Fisheries Management Plan (IFMP), a format that gives a wider context to the management of the fisheries. The Red Sea Urchin commercial, aboriginal and recreational harvest plans are attached as Appendices to the IFMP.
For the latest Post-season Review (history of the fishery, all management regimes used and tables and figures showing trends in catch and effort) contact one of the Resource Management Biologists listed in the contacts section.
