North and Central Coast Salmon Escapement, Catch, Run Size, and Exploitation Rate Estimates For Each Salmon Conservation Unit 1954-2017

LGL Limited was contracted by the Pacific Salmon Foundation (PSF) in February 2018 to work with Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) stock assessment biologists to update the core datasets, database systems and analysis tools needed to produce annual abundance estimates for all North and Central Coast (NCC) salmon stocks using the best available information from 1954-2017. This project builds on previous work supported by Indian and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC), the State of the Salmon Program (SOS), DFO and the PSF to produce the 1980-2010 estimates of escapement, catch and run size for each BC salmon Conservation Unit (CU; English et al. 2004a; 2006a;b; 2010; 2012) and the extension of the time series for Skeena salmon CUs to cover the years from 1954-2010 (English et al. 2013) and 2011 – 2014 (English et al. 2016), both prepared for the PSF.
