Lower Fraser River Gillnet test fishery site evaluation

The primary objective of the project is to evaluate alternative locations for the Cottonwood test fishery in the lower Fraser River. The project would start with an exploratory analysis of historical data and a meeting to discuss the various location options in addition to considering alternative test fishing methods. This would include an assessment by PSC staff of the feasibility of implementing this test fishery in 2021 which would be operated in parallel with the traditional Cottonwood test fishery.
