PICFI CFE Engagement Session
Thank you to all that attended the PICFI CFE Engagement Session on October 9. We were happy see that so many of you could make it to hear program updates and share ideas, challenges, and solutions during the networking sessions. A big shout out to Salish Seas Fisheries LP for coordinating the event – thank you!
DFO and the BDT will be compiling the notes from the day and will be sending them out shortly with the presentation deck from DFO.
