2020 Pre-Season Yukon River Panel bilateral and public meeting cancellation

NOTICE – Due to the emerging and rapidly changing situation surrounding COVID-19, and informed by both guidance and direction from local, regional and federal health authorities, the 2020 Pre-Season Yukon River Panel bilateral and public meetings are cancelled.  Although this is not an easy decision, it is the right decision given the current circumstances and it is being made in the best interest of the health of Panel members, advisors, agency representatives, members of the public and their families and communities.

We recognize the importance of information sharing, international cooperation and coordination of fishery management, and the interests of project proponents who have submitted applications to the Yukon River Restoration and Enhancement Fund for consideration in the current cycle.  In this regard we will be issuing a joint-statement in the coming weeks which will communicate details on these and other aspects pertaining to the conservation and management of Canadian-origin salmon stocks and the disbursement of Yukon River Restoration and Enhancement Fund.
