2017 Preliminary Salmon Forecast

A message from Dave Parenteau

Hi All,
     This is the Preliminary Salmon Forecast for 2017. There’s 17 pages of reading if you’re interested.
     The only thing that I’ll point out is on Pg 3 of 27, under Somass Sockeye “expectations for 2017 Somass Sockeye return are very low. Opportuntities for directed harvest are unlikely”.
      The first sockeye re forecast is usually in late June/early July.
      I’ll keep you posted.
