The Pacific Salmon Foundation has long maintained a hand-in-glove relationship with Fisheries and Oceans Canada. Since 1989, the Pacific Salmon Foundation has worked with Fisheries and Oceans Canada to produce the Salmon Conservation Stamp. An angler wishing to retain any species of salmon must purchase and affix a stamp to their licence. The purchase of a Salmon Conservation Stamp makes you a key contributor as 100 per cent of proceeds are returned to the Foundation to support community-led salmon conservation projects through the Community Salmon Program. The Salmon Conservation Stamp image is also used as an additional fundraising source through the sale of Limited Edition art prints. Prints are sold through the Foundation and can be viewed on this website here. Fisheries and Oceans Canada was also a major funder for the Foundation’s Fraser Salmon and Watershed Program, and works closely with the Foundation in ensuring scientific and technical feasibility of projects funded through the Foundation’s Community Salmon Program.
