COMMERCIAL - Salmon: Gill Net

Fishery Notice - Fisheries and Oceans Canada

Subject: FN0469-Salmon: Gill Net - Area D - Update on future openings for Sockeye in Area 23 - Barkley Sound

Area 23
There is no scheduled sockeye opening for gill nets next week in Barkley Sound –
Alberni Inlet.

At the current run size, Area D has caught close to the allocation based on the
pre-season run-size of 600,000.

There will be a run re-forecast on Wednesday, June 30. If the run-size is
substantially upgraded, there could be a fishing opportunity for Area D in the
following days. Due to concerns for Henderson Lake sockeye in early July in
Barkley Sound and lower Alberni Inlet, any fishing after July 6th would take
place in Alberni Inlet.

Please review DFO fishery notices following the June 30 run re-forecast date.
Area D advisors have recommended that any potential fisheries take place prior
to July 6 if possible.

The 24 hour toll-free phone-in line for fisheries notices is 1-866-431-3474.
