No gillnet pink fishery announced....finally

COMMERCIAL - Salmon: Gill Net
Fishery Notice - Fisheries and Oceans Canada

Subject: FN0643-COMMERCIAL - Salmon: Area C Gill Net - Areas 3, 4, 5 & 6 Update

Areas 3, 4, 5, & 6
A thorough review has been conducted regarding the possibility of conducting a
pink salmon gill net fishery. Species of concern, particularly chum and sockeye
in most areas, continue to be prevalent in the fishing areas and the risk to
already weak chum stocks is considered too great. Assessment will continue in
all areas, however further gill net fishing opportunities appear unlikely.
