Salmon Outlook for 2019

DFO has released its Preliminary 2019 Salmon Outlook.

The Outlook provides information on the forecasted stock status for 2019 across BC’s coast and for all species of Pacific Salmon (pink, chum, sockeye, coho and Chinook).

The outlook is considered preliminary and there is considerable uncertainty in environmental conditions and returns per spawner for most populations.

Read the full report or listen and watch to the webinar including a presentation from DFO’s State of the Salmon Program that looks at broad scale environmental conditions over the past generation that may influence salmon returns in 2019.
