Engagement opportunity: national strategy for Atlantic salmon

by ASF Staff

Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) is developing a comprehensive strategy for the conservation of wild Atlantic salmon that will guide policy for the next two decades. “Restore, Maintain, Thrive: Canada’s national strategy to ensure the future of Atlantic salmon,” has four key pillars, all supporting the central goal of thriving wild Atlantic salmon populations.

The process to date has involved significant public outreach and engagement. ASF has participated extensively, investing time and resources to prepare the best possible feedback and advice on development of the strategy. The federal government has been open and flexible in its consideration of this feedback.

DFO is currently seeking comments on a draft of the final document. This is a unique opportunity for stakeholders to contribute to the process and have their say. The draft strategy is available to read here. Please read more about the strategy and complete the questionnaire to offer your feedback here.

DFO will be accepting submissions until July 30th, 2024.
