Implementing the Habitat and Ecosystem Components of DFO’s Wild Salmon Policy


The advisory offers a detailed implementation plan, and recommends that strategies for habitat and ecosystem management be implented together because of their overlap and as a means of saving costs. The Council recommends the use of broad-scale indicators throughout BC’s salmon waters and more detailed monitoring where high value habitat is under threat. The Council also stresses that monitoring and management actions be linked – good management must be based on good information.
