Update to the Strategic Review of Fisheries Resources for the South Thompson–Shuswap Habitat Management Area


Participants at the 2015 Stewardship Workshop, hosted by FBC and Fisheries and Oceans Canada, offer input to the Strategic Review of Fisheries Resources for the South Thompson-Shuswap Habitat Management Area.

In March 2016 the Fraser Basin Council completed an update of the Strategic Review of Fisheries Resources for the South Thompson–Shuswap Habitat Management Area, a 1997 publication of Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO).

The Strategic Review summarizes fisheries resource information related to:

  • four anadromous species of Pacific salmon: Chinook, Sockeye, Coho and Pink
  • major land and water uses influencing fisheries production within the habitat management area, and
  • watershed management issues and recommendations for all the sub-drainage areas.

Resource managers in all orders of government, as well as stewardship and conservation organizations, have used the Strategic Review to inform decision-making and help prioritize their work. It is hoped the updated version will continue to prove a valuable resource.

For convenience, here are links to both the updated and original versions of the Strategic Review:

About the Fraser Basin Council

The Fraser Basin Council (FBC) is a charitable non-profit organization that brings people together to advance sustainability in the Fraser River Basin and throughout BC. Established in 1997, FBC is a collaboration of four orders of government (federal, provincial, local and First Nations) along with those from the private sector and civil society. We work with people in multiple sectors, helping them find collaborative solutions to today’s issues through a commitment to the social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainability. Our focus is on healthy water and watersheds, action on climate change and air quality and strong, resilient communities and regions.
