Integrated Fisheries Management Plan SEP data tables
These data tables are a component of the Integrated Fisheries Management Plan (IFMP). For more information and for complete IFMP documents please refer to: Fisheries and Oceans Canada's (DFO's) fisheries management program - Integrated Fisheries Management Plans
The IFMP SEP data tables address production only from SEP facilities that undertake fish cultivation, and do not include production from the smaller public involvement projects or production of steelhead or cutthroat (which are provincially managed). The IFMP SEP data tables contain two sets of data: Post-Season Production, and the Production Plan, which includes proposed target production for the upcoming brood year.
The data tables for post-season production list the previous year’s proposed release targets and the production that took place during the associated brood year.
Common reasons why discrepancies may exist between the release target and the actual release include:
- inability to achieve target broodstock due to factors such as low escapement, logistical issues, or environmental conditions such as high water levels
- higher than expected survival during incubation and rearing
Common reasons why there is a target but no associated release, OR a release with no associated target include:
- inability to achieve any of the targeted broodstock due to factors such as low escapement, logistical issues, or environmental conditions such as high water levels
- the target is an approved contingency target, where surplus fry are released only in the event of higher than expected incubation survival or disease screening
- usage of an approved alternate (‘back-up’) release strategy instead, due to an in-season
change from the targeted production. Alternate release strategies may occur in the event that
the primary release strategy (stock, release stage and/or release site) cannot be used due to common causes such as:
- the inability to collect primary broodstock (see reasons above)
- facility rearing capacity or logistical issues, resulting in a change in release stage
- inaccessibility to primary release sites, resulting in releases to nearby sites
The Production Plan lists the production events that are to take place in the upcoming brood year. The targets result from a production planning process that operates within the consultative framework of an integrated harvest planning process which is used to develop the IFMP. In-season changes made after the IFMP is finalized are not included.
