Raincoast works closely with NGOs that form the Salmon Committee of the Pacific Marine Conservation Caucus (with Watershed Watch, SkeenaWild, David Suzuki Foundation, the Steelhead Society of BC, and the Pacific StreamKeepers Foundation) to address salmon harvest and management issues on the Pacific coast.
As such, we participate in the federal planning process (Integrated Harvest Planning Committee) regarding annual salmon fishing plans (Integrated Fisheries Management Plans). Our conservation concerns for 2016 extend to Chinook, Coho, Sockeye, Pink, Chum and Steelhead on the BC coast.
