Project One: 2008 Commercial and Recreational Salmon Fisheries Disaster Program
The California Salmon Council (CSC) under the direction of the California Department of Fish & Game (DFG) assembled an Advisory Committee to develop a first draft recommendation for the 2008 Commercial and Recreational Salmon Fisheries Disaster Program. The DFG took the Council’s recommendations and worked with the governments of Oregon and Washington to create a uniform set of criteria for the three impacted states. The following California plan is posted here for public view.
The CSC will assist the Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission (PSMFC) to distribute the 2008 disaster funds in accordance with the plan when it is officially approved by the Federal Government.
