Good Morning First Nations and Stakeholders,


The 2018/19 draft Northern and Southern BC Salmon Integrated Fishery Management Plans (IFMPs) are available for comment via the drop box link below.  The deadline for submission of comments is April 6th, 2018.


The draft IFMPs set out the policy framework that guides decision making, general objectives relating to management of stocks of concern, enhancement and enforcement, as well as decision guidelines for a range of fisheries.


Section 13 of the IFMPs outline the Species Specific Fishing Plans, which describe fisheries plans for each of the salmon species and the management units and major fishery areas for each species.  This section includes the relevant information on management approach, decision guidelines and specific management measures, as well as, information related to First Nations, commercial and recreational fishing plans for each fishery. Please note sections where information is not yet available have been marked with green font and sections that are key planning priorities have a box around them and are filled in grey. 


During March and April, the Department will be meeting with First Nations and recreational, commercial and environmental groups to seek further feedback on the draft IFMPs as part of the IFMP consultation process.


Comments may also be provided in writing via email to your local Area Resource Manager(s), or to myself at
