Yukon River Technical Committee
The Joint Yukon River Technical Committee was established in 1985 as a scientific advisory body to the Advisors of both countries during the Yukon River Treaty negotiations. The JTC now advises the Yukon River Panel. Comprised of representatives from U.S. and Canadian government agencies and non-governmental organizations, the committee meets semi-annually to discuss harvest and escapement goals, management trends, preseason outlooks and postseason reviews. The JTC is also tasked with undertaking technical reviews of project proposals submitted to the Panel’s Restoration and Enhancement (R&E) Fund.
