Latest Area 4 Skeena Update

Latest Fishery Notice update on Skeena sockeye run. Translated it means: sockeye run still below requirements and this equals no commercial fishery.

COMMERCIAL - Salmon: Gill Net
Fishery Notice - Fisheries and Oceans Canada
Subject: FN0566-COMMERCIAL - Salmon: Gill net - Area C - Area 4 - Update

Area 4
Sockeye escapement through July 28 is 644,548. To reach the production
escapement target of 900,000 and to achieve 150,000 for FSC purposes, we would
have wanted about 714,000 in the river by now. Projected total return is
estimated to be just less than 1 million.
