U.S. to compensate B.C. fishermen under latest pact to protect salmon

Please read article, cited after the quote. Articles open in a new window.

The U.S. government will hand over millions of dollars to compensate the B.C. fishing industry for dramatic cuts to salmon fisheries.

The $30-million US salve is one of several changes that took effect in the Pacific Salmon Treaty at the beginning of this year, with the aim of ensuring the sustainability of declining Pacific salmon stocks in Canada and the U.S.

Most of the U.S. funding will be for the loss in the chinook salmon catch off the west coast of Vancouver Island.
