Subject: FN0560-COMMERCIAL – Salmon – Integrated Fisheries Management Plans 2018/19 for Northern and Southern BC

The BC Salmon Integrated Fisheries Management Plans (IFMPs) for 2018/2019 have
been released.  These plans (one for coastal and interior waters of the
Province of British Columbia north of Cape Caution, and one for south of Cape
Caution including the Fraser River) outline management policies, specific
management objectives, and decision guidelines for a wide range of fisheries
and anticipated opportunities for First Nations, recreational and commercial
fisheries.  These plans were developed through consultation with First Nations
and stakeholder representatives.

DFO manages BC salmon to meet conservation objectives; to ensure that there are
sufficient spawners to sustain populations while optimizing the social and
economic benefits of fisheries for Pacific salmon.  Harvest opportunities will
be provided where abundance permits. For 2018 salmon fisheries, in-season
management will also need to consider potential implications of adverse
environmental conditions on salmon populations.

In-season changes or announcements of specific fishery management measures
including openings, closures and other relevant information will be provided by
Fisheries Notices.  You can sign up to receive notices by e-mail or review
