Annual Report 2008

This is the tenth anniversary of the Pacific Fisheries Resource Conservation Council.  This annual report summarizes the Council’s work performed in 2008 as well as provides a retrospective on issues addressed in the past decade concerning wild Pacific salmon stocks and their freshwater and ocean habitats.  In 2008, the Council produced and commissioned studies intended to contribute to better public understanding of the salmon resource and more effective conservation practices by everyone involved in the fisheries.  These reports are summarized here, as well as explanations of the outcomes of community meetings, briefings, and discussions with senior federal and provincial government officials.
