Wild Atlantic salmon in Eastern Canada: XC51-1/1-421-5E-PDF

“On 21 April 2016, the House of Commons Standing Committee on Fisheries and Oceans (the Committee) agreed to “undertake a comprehensive study on the conservation, restoration and socio-economic issues related to the Atlantic salmon in Canada.” The Committee convened six meetings between May and October 2016 to study the matter, hearing submissions and testimony from representatives of Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO), scientists, Indigenous communities, environmental and salmon conservation organizations, outfitters, and recreational fishers (a complete list is attached to this report). The Committee also traveled to Miramichi, New Brunswick, in September 2016 to hear from local environmental and salmon conservation organizations as well as the region’s First Nations. In South Esk, the Committee visited the Miramichi Salmon Conservation Centre, the oldest operating salmon hatchery in Canada, in order to speak with members of the Miramichi Salmon Association engaged in wild salmon conservation. The Committee is pleased to present its report, in which it makes recommendations to the federal government. These recommendations are based on the testimony of witnesses as well as the Committee's own analysis of the issues"--Intro., p. 1.
