If Canadian salmon and steelhead numbers are declining, Alaska’s impact is also reduced, right?


Not necessarily, fishery managers in Alaska open fisheries with little consideration of how many Canadian or southern US salmon and steelhead may be present. Even relatively small Alaskan harvest of depressed BC salmon and steelhead populations can have big impacts. Alaskan interception fisheries are compromising our conservation and rebuilding efforts and limit fishing opportunities for Canadian First Nation, commercial and recreational fishers.
