A step towards ecosystem-based management?


Long Live the Kings announced in Dec 2008 an effort to implement internal changes at WDFW to manage salmon in an “All-H” framework — one that integrates decisions about Hatcheries, Harvest, and Habitat. Perhaps this is a step towards the “Ecosystem Based Management” which no one can define for me, but is already a buzz phrase in the Salish Sea (Puget Sound/Georgia Basin) Conference next month. I note again that the words “orca” and “killer whale” aren’t mentioned on the web page or the nice brochure summarizing the initiative:

The 21st Century & Salmon Steelhead Initiative

The 21st Century Salmon and Steelhead Initiative (21CSS) is a partnership between the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) and Long Live the Kings (LLTK) to create a new integrated “All-H” decision-making framework for managing salmon and steelhead.
Humans influence the health of salmon through three primary factors – habitat, harvest, and hatcheries. The newly completed framework coordinates decisions about hatcheries, harvest, and habitat for the purpose of recovering naturally-spawning salmon and steelhead populations while supporting sustainable fisheries. The framework sets out what is necessary, across multiple disciplines, to meet this goal; it assesses where WDFW is today in relation to that goal; and it identifies benchmarks over the next 50 years against which to measure progress.
