Review of 2016 Ocean Salmon Fisheries available online

Friday, February 17th, 2017

The Council’s annual review of ocean salmon fisheries is available online. This stock assessment and fishery evaluation (SAFE) document is the first in a series of four annual documents developed each year to help guide the Council’s selection of annual fishery management measures. This postseason review covers 2016 ocean salmon fisheries off the coasts of Washington, Oregon, and California. The review provides a summary of important biological and socioeconomic data from which to assess the impacts of past management actions, determine how well management objectives are being met, and improve regulations for the future. This postseason report will also provide a detailed description of the salmon fishery portions of the affected environment to be incorporated by reference into an Environmental Assessment (EA) to comply with National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) requirements for the 2017 ocean salmon management measures.  The Council will formally review this report at its March 2017 meeting prior to the development of management alternatives for the approaching fishing season.
