Fisheries Management Objectives for the North Saskatchewan River

Protection of fisheries must include protection of hydrological and physical processes that maintain the natural structure and function of flowing water as well as protecting biological components. Successful management of fisheries requires consideration of fish and
all ecosystem elements that are necessary to support them as well as societal uses and preferences.
 
This study represents the understanding and views of Fisheries Management Branch of Sustainable Resource Development as of October 2008. Wherever possible, assessments are based on current data. Throughout the document, some statements are also made which are based on staff knowledge of the North Saskatchewan River, professional opinion and the application of more broadly understood biological, ecological and fishery management concepts, processes and relationships to the fish populations and habitats within the geographic area defined.
 
For the purposes of this overview and the identified subjective assessments, these statements may not include references from the scientific literature. The content, context and format of these fisheries management objectives are subject to revision in the future as new information and knowledge becomes available. This document will become obsolete with the release of subsequent versions.
