Joint Technical Working Group


The Joint Technical Working Group was formed to review the species and/or stock specific basis data, assumptions, and theories that were used or will be used to assess existing or proposed fishery plans and management decisions; and provide an assessment of the plans and management actions as they relate to DFO and First Nations objectives.

For greater clarity and certainty, the Joint Technical Working Group discusses/debates technical information and data on its own merits.

Conclusions arrived at from those discussions may then be provided to First Nations and DFO who may in turn use the information when discussing fishery management issues on a bi-lateral basis.
