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 for salmon. Concerns have been identified 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, concerns for mixed-stock ocean fisheries that should move more catch to terminal areas, and concerns for wildlife and ecosystems that depend on wild salmon reaching their natal streams
