The Fraser River Sportfishing Alliance (FRSA) is a collective voice of the recreational sport fishing community. We call on the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) to take the following actions:
- Manage the Fraser River salmon fishery in a manner that recognizes the rights of recreational anglers
- Ensure that the recreational sector’s post-conservation salmon allocation is not transferred to other sectors
- Recognize the economic and social value of the recreational fishing industry
- Ensure sustainable management so that this Canadian, natural, and public resource will be enjoyed by future generations
This is not a simple task and we know that significant costs will be incurred in our efforts to protect sustainable access to the Fraser River.
Therefore, the FRSA is asking any business, organization or individuals impacted by the loss of recreational salmon fishing to consider contributing, donating, or joining as a member.
