These Proceedings summarize the relevant discussions and key conclusions that resulted from a Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO), Canadian Science Advisory Secretariat (CSAS) Regional Advisory meeting of May 26-27, 2010 at the Pacific Biological Station in Nanaimo, B.C. Two working papers were reviewed: Status of Cultus Lake Sockeye Salmon and Updated Methods for Assessing Harvest Rules for Fraser River Sockeye Salmon. Two Science Advisory Reports were also reviewed: 2010 assessment and 2011 forecast for West Coast Vancouver Island Chinook Salmon and Barkley Sound (Area 23) Sockeye Salmon.
In-person and web-based participation included Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) Science and Fisheries and Aquatic Management Sectors staff; and external participants from First Nations organizations, the commercial and recreational fishing sectors, environmental non-governmental organizations, and academia.
The conclusions and advice resulting from this review will be provided in the form of Science Advisory Reports to Fisheries and Aquaculture management to inform salmon fishery planning for the above-noted stocks.
The four Science Advisory Reports and two supporting Research Documents will be made publicly available on the CSAS Science Advisory Schedule at http://www.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/csas-sccs/index-eng.htm
