Harvest Study

2000-2001 marked the sixth year of the Yukon River Harvest Study. The Study was initiated in 1996 under section 16.10.3 of the Umbrella Final Agreement. The Basic Needs Allocation for salmon for Yukon River First Nations will be negotiated following the completion of the study in 2002. Yukon Salmon Sub-Committee members, in partnership with Fisheries and Oceans Canada, comprise the Steering Committee, which directs and oversees the study.
