Skeena Salmon Management Committee Annual Reports

The Skeena Salmon Management Committee was established by the Minister of Fisheries in 1954 to investigate the condition of Skeena River salmon stocks, to improve management of the runs, and to increase the yield, if possible. To achieve its objectives the Committee uses both the administrative, fish culture, and research staffs of the Department of Fisheries. Upon establishing the Committee, the Minister of Fisheries appointed an Advisory Board representing the various sections of the industry concerned with the Skeena River salmon fishery. The Committee meets with its Advisory Board several times each year to discuss investigations and the basis for regulation of the fishery.
