Integrated Herring Harvest Planning Committee (IHHPC)

The IHHPC was established by the Department to promote a more stream-lined, representative, cross sectoral advisory process related to herring harvest planning, management, and post-season review. It is DFO's venue for cross-sectoral communication and advice on issues related to herring fisheries in the Pacific Region.

The goal of the IHHPC is to support the development of fishing plans that are coordinated and integrated, to identify potential conflicts, and to make recommendations for resolving disputes. The committee does not have an approval capacity, and does not deal with recommendations of food, social and ceremonial (FSC) harvest plans.

Representation on advisory bodies relates to the mandate and function of the committee. Participation in advisory processes has been designed to reflect a broad range of interests in fisheries and oceans issues in the Pacific Region, to the extent possible, so that a diversity of perspectives is involved. Membership in the IHHPC is comprised of representatives from the Spawn on Kelp sector, the Roe Herring sector, First Nations, the Marine Conservation Caucus (MCC), Sport Fishing Advisory Board (SFAB), Province of BC, and Fisheries and Oceans Canada. Selection of members to sector organizations should be open, fair, and democratic.
