MCC input to draft 2021-22 IFMP for salmon fisheries

The salmon committee of the MCC has submitted its comments on the draft Integrated Fisheries Management Plan. We have concerns for the lack of recovery of at-risk populations that continue to be fished, concerns for proposals that move Canada toward U.S. style fisheries that rely on hatcheries, the need for more fisheries to be conducted in terminal areas on known stocks (versus mixed stocks), and concerns that wildlife and ecosystems are not being considered in salmon management.
