Genetic Stock Identification

Two GSI workshops were held in 2007, the first in Portland, OR, the second in Vancouver, BC. The objectives of the workshops Steering Committee were to develop recommendations for integration of GSI information into a coordinated coast-wide management system to improve the ability of ocean fisheries to access abundant stocks within impact constraints established for other specific stocks and, to the extent possible, to identify and quantify the costs, implementation steps and timeframes to implement these recommendations.

Logistics Workgroup Recommendations

Recommendations for several logistical aspects relating to the potential incorporation of genetic data into the management of ocean salmon fisheries. Standardization issues were foremost in terms of focus and importance.

Management Workgroup Recommendations

Attempted to answer the following three questions. What are the current management objectives? What deficiencies in the current data impede achieving these objectives? How can GSI be applied to remedy these deficiencies?

Genetics Workgroup Recommendations

The specific charge to the Genetics Workgroup was to develop specific proposals from the following charges: 1) Recommend additional sampling locations, sample sizes, and field and laboratory protocols to improve the GSI database; 2) Recommend how best to incorporate GSI data into ocean salmon management models and regimes; 3) Suggest further research to more effectively incorporate GSI data into the management of ocean fisheries of salmon.
