These Proceedings summarize the relevant discussions and key conclusions that resulted from a Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) Canadian Science Advisory Secretariat (CSAS) Regional Peer Review meeting on January 18-20, 2022 via video teleconference. The working paper focusing on estimates of biological benchmarks for the Canadian-origin Yukon River mainstem Chinook Salmon stock aggregate was presented for peer review.

The conclusions and advice resulting from this review will be provided in the form of a Science Advisory Report providing advice to DFO Treaties and Fisheries Unit, Yukon-Transboundary Rivers Area to inform subsequent fisheries management recommendations to meet treaty/international obligations and Precautionary Approach commitments.
