How can you manage a fishery if you can’t accurately measure it?

CDFW’s Marci Yaremko Environmental Program Manager Marine Region (Region 7) attempted to flip the long term historical river allocations to ocean allocations during agenda item C.6 on Friday, March 8.

Yaremko made a motion to allocate the long term historical RIVER SALMON 14% of the river run size to OCEAN ALLOCATIONS.
ALT 1- 91% of the fish to ocean and 9% to river (3,033)
ALT 2- 50/50% split 16,850 each ocean and inland
ALT 3 – CLOSED

In case you missed it — watch this Pacific Fishery Council YouTube video of what Yaremko proposed for the ocean harvest — taking fish away from the Sacramento River? Click here

If you would like to email CDFW your opinion about this initial proposal, email oceansalmon@wildlife.ca.gov
