Subject: FN0670-Salmon - Areas 12 & 13 - Limited Dual Fishing Trial during the Area B Seine Fraser sockeye ITQ fishery in Johnstone Strait

The Department has approved a limited dual fishing trial to allow First Nation

fishing at one time during the Area B seine Fraser sockeye ITQ fishery in
Johnstone Strait and must follow all licence conditions including mandatory on-

commercial salmon licence (e.g. Fraser sockeye ITQ amount) or the FSC amounts
indicated on the First Nation communal or supplemental licence.

Other commercial vessels are not permitted to fish for First Nations FSC fish
while commercial fishing. Please refer to your licence conditions for further
details.
