Salmon Roundtables were created by First Nations, commercial fishers, and sport fishers with Fisheries and Oceans Canada to promote a more streamlined, multi-interest, co-management process related to salmon harvest planning and management at a local level.


In areas where substantial fisheries exist, Harvest Roundtables and Stewardship Roundtables may both exist but work together to address research, restoration, and enhancement in a comprehensive manner.

"These tables are successful in managing very complicated fisheries."

“I would like to acknowledge the spirit of cooperation exhibited by all parties. Even when there were conflicts there always seemed to be an effort to search for solutions.”

“I think this approach is absolutely essential to sustainability of the stocks and the interests of the parties.”

I feel the Roundtables are a good way to inform people and come to consensus on issues in relation to salmon. Roundtable meetings should be organized in each management region/zone and all levels of Canada/BC governments should be involved in some way.
