Cohen Response 2017 Status Update
In 2009, Canada established the Cohen Commission of Inquiry into the Decline of Sockeye Salmon in the Fraser River. The goal was to investigate the decline of sockeye salmon stocks and provide recommendations.
The commission’s final report, The Uncertain Future of Fraser River Sockeye, includes 75 recommendations on a range of issues.
Since the report published in October 2012, Fisheries and Oceans Canada has acted on many of the recommendations. We're committed to continuing this important work moving forward.
