Fisheries

Within FishSource, the term "fishery" is used to indicate each unique combination of a flag country with a fishing gear, operating within a particular management unit, upon a resource. That resource may have a known biological stock structure and/or may be assessed at another level for practical or jurisdictional reasons. A fishery is the finest scale of resolution captured in FishSource profiles, as it is generally the scale at which sustainability can most fairly and practically be evaluated.

RECOMMENDATIONS

Last updated on 28 June 2016

Improvement Recommendations to Catchers & Regulators

1. Work actively to address and close out conditions placed upon the certification of the fishery in the agreed timeframe.
2. Report achievements publicly to share progress with buyers.

Recommendations to Retailers & Supply Chain

1. Monitor the progress in closing out conditions placed upon the certification of the fishery and if agreed timelines are met.
2. Express your support to help meet conditions that may be at a government/regulatory level (where applicable). Please contact the relevant SFP Sector Group or Supplier Roundtable for more specific information.

Improvement Recommendations to Catchers & Regulators

1. Start a fishery improvement project to address sustainability issues in this fishery. For advice on starting a FIP, see SFP’s Seafood Industry Guide to FIPs at http://www.sustainablefish.org/publications/2014/04/30/the-seafood-industry-guide-to-fips.
2. Communicate to fishery managers that there are sustainability issues in this fishery that may be affecting the sale of products, and request that they comprehensively evaluate and address such issues.

Recommendations to Retailers & Supply Chain

1. Encourage your supply chain to start a fishery improvement project. For advice on starting a FIP see SFP’s Seafood Industry Guide to FIPs at http://www.sustainablefish.org/publications/2014/04/30/the-seafood-industry-guide-to-fips.
2. Work with other suppliers and buyers on a pre-competitive basis to start a supplier roundtable to review improvement needs in this and other similar fisheries, catalyze fishery improvement projects, and monitor progress in improvement efforts.

FishSource Scores

SELECT SCORES

MANAGEMENT QUALITY

Click on the score to see subscores

Different components of this salmon region score differently at the fishery level. Please look at the individual fisheries using the selection drop down above.

As calculated for 2012 data.

The score is ≥ 6.

Generally in Russia, target reference points for escapement into major spawning rivers are established with the input of index river studies, which establish “spawning ground area” measurements for entire basins. The reference points are derived from the spawning ground area measurements according to the following formula: one pink salmon per square meter, and two chum salmon per 3m2 (Makeev 2010). While the accuracy of several index river studies on Sakhalin was brought into question by a recent survey (Makeev, 2011), the MSC assessment of the Iturup Island pink and chum fisheries found that the Russian escapement goals generally meet MSC standards, although in regions with hatchery production they need to incorporate straying data (i.e. conditions were attached to the Iturup Island certification) (SCS, 2009). On the basis of this assessment, Russian fisheries without significant hatchery production generally rate “≥8” for FishSource criterion #2, and fisheries with hatchery production (for chum salmon in Russia - Khabarovsk, Primoriya, Sakhalin, Kamchatka, Iturup, and Magadan) rate “≥6.”
