Who We Are

The roles of the Centre are to report on stock status, evaluate stresses on fish populations and habitats, promote the use of state of the art science and technology, and to provide a forum for information sharing and participation with stakeholders. The Centre also plays an important role in offering management recommendations to promote sustainable fisheries and resolve conflict.

The A/OFRC has established a solid working relationship with First Nations, provincial agencies and community organizations by earning a reputation as a trusted independent source of fisheries information. We will continue to strive to maintain and strengthen these relationships in any future endeavours.
