Pacific Salmon Strategy Initiative
Pacific salmon need our help. In recent years, climate change, habitat loss and fishing pressures have negatively affected Pacific salmon at every stage of their lifecycle. Our Pacific Salmon Strategy Initiative will guide a strategic and coordinated long term response to these issues, rooted in collaborative action, to stabilize and restore Pacific salmon and salmon habitat for the people, communities and ecosystems that depend upon their sustainability.
Pillars of the strategy
Our strategy aims to stem the steep decline of many Pacific salmon populations and to protect and rebuild stocks where possible by implementing a series of immediate and long-term solutions that focus on 4 key areas:
Engagement on the Initiative
We can't do this alone. We are proposing a number of actions to address Pacific salmon declines and will be engaging with:
- Indigenous communities
- governments at all levels
- the commercial salmon fishing industry and recreational fishers
- environmental and salmon stewardship organizations
- scientists and other academics
- general public
These engagements will ensure our efforts are focused on the actions that will have the greatest impact.
