Fisheries and Oceans Canada
26 SEP facilities along the Fraser River and other rivers, British Columbia
Name and function of Laboratory/ Facility
The Salmonid Enhancement Program (SEP) supports the Fisheries Renewal and International Governance priorities of Fisheries and Oceans Canada. It contributes 10-20% of the total First Nations, recreational and commercial harvest of salmon in the Pacific Region. As well, SEP applies annual coded-wire tags in Pacific region which, in addition to stock assessment, provide information on Canadian salmon production for Canada-U.S. Pacific Salmon Treaty negotiations. In addition, SEP facilities are used to assist in strategic enhancement of wild stocks that are at critically low levels of abundance, thereby contributing to conservation.
