Analysis of Programs by Strategic Outcome

Sub-program 1.4.1 - Salmonid Enhancement Operations


Salmonid Enhancement Operations includes the production of Pacific salmon from enhancement facilities and restored habitat, and projects that enable citizen participation in fisheries and watershed stewardship activities. Enhancement facilities include hatcheries and spawning channels that produce fish to provide harvest opportunities for First Nations, commercial, and recreational fisheries and to support vulnerable stocks and Canada's stock assessment commitments under the International Pacific Salmon Treaty. The Program supports citizen participation in fisheries and watershed stewardship, habitat restoration, and enhancement projects involving the public and other government, corporate, and First Nation partners. Projects with community partners also include support for the development of integrated local and area watershed plans and stewardship activities. Salmonid Enhancement Operations also supports school education and public awareness projects.
