2021 CDFW Annual Salmon Information

Meeting February 25, 2021

10:00 am – 4:00 pm



The 2021 California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) Salmon Information Meeting marks the beginning of a two-month long public process used to develop annual sport and commercial ocean salmon fishing regulations. The process involves collaborative negotiations with west coast states, federal agencies, tribal co managers, and stakeholders interested in salmon fishery management and conservation. Public input will help California representatives develop a range of recommended season alternatives during the March 2-5 and 8-11, 2021 meeting of the Pacific Fishery Management Council (PFMC).


Meeting Objectives

• Provide a review of 2020 ocean and river fisheries.

• Provide a review of 2020 inland escapement (Central Valley and Klamath Basin).

• Provide an overview of 2021 ocean abundance forecasts and how they translate into available fishing opportunity.

• Collect public input on 2021 ocean salmon fisheries.
