The commission should recommend that DFO’s “No Net Loss” policy be upgraded to restore more estuary habitat, which migrating salmon fry require to transition from fresh to saltwater. DFO must also be funded and given the responsibility of monitoring and maintaining all new and existing estuary restorations. To ensure the continued presence of Canadian fishers on the rivers and along the coast, the commission should recommend the implementation of an owner-operator provision for the salmon fishery such that the holder of a licence must be onboard the boat when it is fishing.
