The 2013 Public Certification Report for the Alaska salmon fisheries was released on November 12, 2013. No conditions (fishery improvement targets) were placed on the Yukon salmon fishery. Although Chinook abundance has been low in recent years resulting in Chinook being identified as a stock of concern, there has been no directed commercial fishery since 2007, and managers have minimized incidental harvests of Chinook in the chum fishery.
An Action Plan outlining timelines and activities that would be taken to address conditions was written by the Client, approved by the assessment team, and included in the assessment report. As no conditions were placed on the Yukon UoC, it was not included in the Action Plan.
No results. Please refer to Action Plan PDF for all action items.
