Subject: FN0518-Salmon: Integrated Fisheries Management Plans 2010/11 for B.C. North and South Coast

The B.C. Salmon Integrated Fisheries Management Plans (IFMPs) for 2010/2011
have been released. These plans (one for coastal and interior waters of the
Province of British Columbia north of Cape Caution, and one for south of Cape
Caution including the Fraser River) outline management policies, specific
management objectives, and decision guidelines for a wide range of fisheries
and anticipated opportunities for First Nations, recreational and commercial
fisheries. These plans were developed through consultation with
representatives of all stakeholders including the Integrated Harvest Planning

DFO manages B.C. salmon to meet conservation objectives; to ensure that there
are sufficient spawners to sustain populations while optimizing the economic
benefits of fisheries for Pacific salmon. Harvest opportunities will be
provided where abundance permits.

DFO is continuing to work with First Nations and commercial harvesters to move
forward on Pacific Fishery Renewal and will be implementing demonstration
fisheries for a number of fleets and areas in 2010/2011. First Nations and
commercial demonstration fisheries are intended to access defined shares of
salmon, improve catch monitoring and improve the economic potential of
fisheries while ensuring conservation of salmon stocks.

Salmon IFMPs for 2010/2011 for the Pacific Region can be found on the DFO
