Northern Boundary and Transboundary Rivers Restoration & Enhancement Fund
Call for Proposals for the 2014 Project Year
Proposals are due August 25, 2013
The Northern Fund Committee operates within the mandate established for it in the 1999 Agreement between Canada and the United States under the Pacific Salmon Treaty (PST). The mandate states that the Northern Fund shall be employed as a long-term and stable monetary base that supports projects that assist stocks and fisheries covered under the Pacific Salmon Treaty. It specifies that the proceeds from the Northern Fund shall be used to support the following types of activities:
- Development of improved information for resource management, including better stock assessment, data acquisition and improved scientific understanding of limiting factors affecting salmon production in the freshwater and marine environments;
- Rehabilitation and restoration of marine and freshwater fish habitat, and improvement of habitat to enhance productivity and protection of Pacific salmon; and
- Enhancement of wild stock production through low technology techniques rather than through large facilities with high operating costs.
