CDFW SALMON INFORMATION MEETING: MARCH 1 AT 10AM, ZOOM IN

CDFW invites the public to attend its annual Salmon Information Meeting via webinar on Friday, Mar. 1 at 10 a.m. The meeting will provide informational presentations on topics such as last year’s spawning escapement, estimates of forecasted ocean abundance and management goals for 2024 ocean salmon seasons. Salmon Information Meeting details, informational materials and instructions for attendance will be published on Wednesday (Feb. 28) before the event on CDFW’s Ocean Salmon Calendar of Events webpage.

The 2024 Salmon Information Meeting marks the beginning of a two month long public process used to develop annual sport and commercial ocean salmon fishing regulations and is also used to inform development of inland salmon fishing regulations later in the spring. The process involves collaborative negotiations between west coast states, federal agencies, tribal co-managers and others interested in salmon fishery management and conservation.

California representatives will work together to develop a range of recommended ocean fishing season alternatives at the March 6-11 Pacific Fishery Management Council (PFMC) meeting in Fresno. Final season recommendations will be adopted at the PFMC’s April 6-11 meeting in Seattle. For PFMC Agenda, CLICK HERE to go to their meetings page.
