International Salmon Summit

Apr 9 2014 - Apr 10 2014

In an effort to enhance cross border knowledge and understanding about Yukon River fisheries, the people that rely on them, the management programs and recent declines in Chinook salmon, an international salmon summit in conjunction with an Alaskan pre-season planning meeting is being planned to take place April 9 and 10, 2014 in Fairbanks, Alaska. All stakeholder groups will be invited to participate in the summit and include those that depend on the Yukon River Chinook salmon such as Alaskan Tribes and First Nations people in Yukon, as well as inter-Tribal groups and non-profit groups working on behalf of the salmon fisheries and the state and federal management agencies on both sides of the border. This includes the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada.

The goal of the summit is to increase the ability of people living along the Yukon River to maintain and protect salmon stocks and their habitat. Through creating a greater understanding of key issues and of salmon management, the summit will also develop solutions that could address threats to a sustainable harvest of Chinook salmon in Yukon, particularly by those who have a Treaty or Aboriginal right to fish these stocks. Recent declines in Yukon River Chinook salmon stocks have highlighted the need for an unprecedented meeting of this magnitude. More info and registration here.
