Reports of Atlantic salmon captured in BC waters
Fisheries and Oceans Canada's (DFO’s) Atlantic Salmon Watch Program (ASWP) was established in 1991 to study the abundance, distribution and biology of Atlantic salmon in British Columbia and its adjacent waters. The ASWP relies on voluntary reports from Indigenous, recreational and commercial fishers, processors, field biologists and hatchery workers.
If you capture or observe an Atlantic salmon in BC waters, please keep the carcass and call the toll-free reporting line at 1-800-811-6010 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Donation is not mandatory but it provides valuable samples for our scientific study.
AWSP staff follow up on reports and verify them either through the use of photographs or biological samples where available. A summary of reports made to the ASWP since July 2005 can be found below.
DFO also publishes reports on escapes of marine finfish (of any species) from aquaculture sites in BC.
