Pacific salmon fisheries management

We are responsible for managing sockeye, pink, chum, chinook and coho salmon in a manner that balances conservation goals with Aboriginal, recreational and commercial fishing opportunities.

We contribute to the conservation and enhancement of salmon species through several programs. Partnerships with environmental foundations, the sale of the Salmon Conservation Stamp, and the Salmonid Enhancement Program's salmon hatcheries, and stewardship, outreach and community involvement initiatives, are all part of our commitment to the conservation mandate.
