Résumé :
La pêche aux filets dérivants et l’utilisation de sonars ont des effets dévastateurs sur le saumon rouge du Fraser. Par conséquent, la Commission devrait recommander un nombre limite de bateaux de pêche canadiens et américains autorisés à pêcher commercialement, que tous les filets soient limités à une longueur de 100 mètres ou moins et qu’on applique davantage les lois afin d’empêcher la surpêche. Le saumon de C.-B. est une ressource canadienne qu’il faut protéger des pêcheurs prédateurs par l’adoption de lois canadiennes.

Représentations :
Dear Cohen Commissioners:
As you are all well aware, salmon-like many other species on the planet are migratory and their annual migration is-for the most part-predictable within a matter of days/hours and route followed.

During the last 30 years in particular, man has created a less hospitable environment for these and all sea creatures, however, in the case of a predictable migratory species like the salmon, drift net fishing and use of sonar have had-and will continue to have a devastating effect on the species.
In keeping with your mandate, i.e.; "to develop recommendations for improving the future sustainability of the sockeye salmon fishery in the Fraser River including, as required, any changes to the policies, practices and procedures of the Department in relation to the management of the Fraser River sockeye salmon fishery,"

I sincerely believe you will recommend Limits on:
a). the numbers of vessels from each country allowed to engage in this (or any) fishery.
b). the length of all nets be limited to 100m or less.
c). RCN &/or CCG Vessels be despatched to ensure overfishing is not employed by any vessel or country along this species migratory route.

It is your duty to see that the West Coast Salmon Fishery does not go the way of the East Coast Cod Fishery.
BC Salmon are a CANADIAN RESOURCE and need to be PROTECTED by CANADIAN LAW-wherever situated-even in International Waters-against all Predatory Fisher's practices.

Please do your duty.
