2020 SFI Annual Policy Conference – Online Series

DIRECTORS

Charting a Predictable Path for Salmon and BC’s Public Fishery

Webinars were held on November 6th, 13th, 20th and 27th

Presentation and Session Links Below

The SFI hosted a series of virtual discussions in November 2020 intended to discuss pathways for recovery of salmon stocks and predictable opportunity and reliable access for BC’s public fishery.

While a new approach and virtual in 2020, the event, events this year, remain a key forum where elected officials, public servants and those in the sport fishing industry can meet and share their perspectives on trends, innovations and issues facing BC’s public fishery.

Thank you to our 2020 Conference sponsors and supporters.


This was the first of four virtual discussions intended to seek pathways for recovery of salmon stocks and predictable opportunity and reliable access for BC’s public fishery. SFI and regional perspectives are offered and challenges and solutions discussed.
