Human sustainability must be studied in addition to salmon sustainability. A lack of inclusiveness exists around DFO’s management decisions and consultation with First Nations. An assessment of the social, economic and biological consequences of salmon fisheries should be included in salmon management practices. Improved science around stock assessment, marine survival issues and the effect of hatcheries is necessary. Climate change is one of the major habitat issues for Fraser sockeye.
