2011 Fraser River Sockeye and Pink Salmon Forecast
Pacific Regional Science Advisory Process
February 4, 2011
Nanaimo, British Columbia
Chairperson: Michael Chamberlain
The Regional Advisory Meeting (RAP) will review the 2011 abundance forecasts for Fraser River Sockeye and Pink salmon. Fraser River Sockeye abundance forecasts are requested annually and Pink salmon abundance forecasts are requested bi-annually by Fisheries and Aquaculture Management for pre-season fisheries planning activities. The 2011 forecast estimates for Sockeye salmon use methods described and reviewed by the Centre for Science Advice Pacific Region (CSAP) in March 2010. Abundance forecasts will be used to inform pre-season fisheries management scenarios.
The objectives for the review of the Scientific Advisory Report (SAR) are to:
- Evaluate the paper to determine the appropriateness of the data and the methods used within the analysis;
- Identify and evaluate the sources of uncertainty and the assumptions used in analysis;
- Provide a synthesis of the RAP discussion and conclusions; and advice.
