Thursday, April 13, 2017

The Pacific Fishery Management Council will soon decide on its salmon management strategy for 2017, and a number of groups are already preparing for the worst.

Each year, the PFMC develops estimates of salmon return numbers along the Pacific coast, utilizing that information to set quotas for harvest – commercial, tribal and recreational.

For the past few days, the PFMC, along with advisory agencies and entities, has been in Sacramento, California, discussing the adoption of final regulatory measures for this season’s salmon harvest. The council will pick from three alternatives that vary in a number of ways but notably each has one thing in common – a complete closure of the commercial fishery in the Klamath Management Zone.
