Since 1987, the Foundation has published reports on a range of topics, including salmon recovery plans for specific watersheds and independent reviews of the management of specific fisheries and industries that may affect salmon. In addition to reports authored or co-authored by the Foundation, the searchable library also includes the holdings o the Pacific Fisheries Resource Conservation Council, which was an advisory body to the federal fisheries minister from 1999-2012.
