Northern Fund Announcement for projects beginning in 2021

The Northern Fund Committee hereby issues their 2021 Call for Proposals for projects which are consistent with, and necessary for, the implementation of the Pacific Salmon Treaty. Private, non-profit, and public sector applicants are encouraged to submit project concepts by midnight on Friday, August 28 2020. The Committee is seeking potential projects for the Northern Boundary and Transboundary areas that are consistent with the Funds goals that involve:

  1. Development of improved information for resource management, including better stock assessment, data acquisition and improved scientific understanding of limiting factors affecting salmon production in the freshwater and marine environments;
  2. Rehabilitation and restoration of marine and freshwater fish habitat, and improvement of habitat to enhance productivity and protection of Pacific salmon; and
  3. Enhancement of wild stock production through low technology techniques rather than through large facilities with high operating costs.

Please download the Northern Fund Call for Project Concepts for the full details of how to apply.
