The attached paper describes attributes of Pacific salmon that make the species resilient and proposes an approach to fishery management that would sustain rather than undermine the species’ natural resilience.

I am sending a copy of a paper I published last year on issues of salmon management and salmon resilience in British Columbia as I think it is relevant to the deliberations of the commission. I am also completing a paper on cumulative impacts of climate change on Fraser sockeye that I will submit to the commission shortly.
I am currently a visiting professor at Kwansei Gakuin University in Japan so contact, if you wish it, is best by email.

This paper is one of the most cogent and perceptive analyses of the counter productive fishery resource practices of DFO and other overseeing bodies and legislators I have ever read. I urge the Cohen Commission to read and study this paper and consider the implications for recovering our sockeye stocks, and all of our remaining West Coast salmon resources.
