North Coast Salmon Update #5

16 07 19 North Coast Salmon Update

Here is the latest North Coast Update from DFO.

Highlights include:

-Nass and Skeena sockeye fisheries curtailed due to downsized returns

-235 steelhead caught in the last Area 4 Skeena gillnet opening!! And they only caught 7633 sockeye for a 32 to 1 ration for sox to stld…..very, very high and absolutely no mention of this in the comments by DFO.

-Of note in Area 8 central coast is the new requirement for weedlines on gillnets in sub area 8-5. This is a new regulation that we and others pushed for all of Area 8…hopefully the regulation will spread.
