PACIFIC SALMON COMMISSION’S TRANSBOUNDARY PANEL
CAFN is seeking one Citizen for nomination to the Pacific Salmon Commission’s Transboundary Panel.
The Transboundary Panel was created in 1999 and has responsibility for salmon originating in the Alsek, Stikine, and Taku river systems all of which rise in Canada and flow to the sea in South West Alaska. Its tasks include implementing abundance based management regimes for chinook, sockeye and coho salmon; improving coordinated management; continuing joint enhancement initiatives; and, the review of access to enhanced stocks and harvest sharing arrangements. The Panel is supported by the Transboundary Technical Committee and that Committee’s Enhancement Subcommittee.
Key elements and considerations for Panel members:
- The ability of individuals to represent, broadly, the interests of Canada (note solely the interests of the sector, government or interest group to which they are affiliated);
- The experience, technical, and/or transitional ecological knowledge, communication skills and team-work required to successfully fulfill the role of Panel member;
- The ability to exercise diplomacy and good judgement (e.g., respect for the interests and view of others);
- The ability to compromise in order to seek common solutions to complex issues;
- The ability to regularly attend meetings outside of Canada;
- The ability of an individual to represent a group that has accountability process within its membership; and
- Engaging with First Nations to obtain input on panel related issues and bring forward those perspectives in Panel discussions.
