Impacts of flexible quota system on walrus (Odobenus rosmarus rosmarus) harvesting: Fs70-6/2017-040E-PDF

“Walrus is a key fishery for DFO and is reported on via the national Sustainability Checklist. DFO is continuing to build on the Sustainable Fisheries Framework for key fisheries that contain existing DFO policies for resource management decisions, and builds on new policies to address ecosystem factors and precautionary considerations. Increasing national and international attention regarding how Canada is managing these walrus stocks requires the Department to be able to demonstrate that harvests are sustainable, or take appropriate actions if current harvest levels are deemed unsustainable. The present analysis address requests for advice from Ecosystem and Fisheries Management concerning what form of flex-quota, or Carry-Over provisions, could be established for use in the management of walrus once a Total Allowable Harvest (TAH) is established for a management unit"--Introd., p. 2.
