Fishlink and The Fishlink ‘Sublegals’

The Institute for Fisheries Resources’

Fishlink® Network and the Fishlink® News Service

One of the most powerful modern tools for speedy communication is the Internet. To take advantage of this fact, the Institute has established and co-manages (with PCFFA) an Internet electronic information network called Fishlink®. This network now informationally links many commercial and recreational fishery organizations on the west coast and elsewhere, as well as a number of conservation organizations, Tribal governments and people in both state and federal agencies. Fishlink® thus provides near-instantaneous fisheries news and information to “fish folk” who are active on a wide variety of sustainable fishery and salmon habitat protection issues on the Pacific coast and elsewhere.

Fishlink® publishes a free electronic newsletter (the ‘Sublegals‘) intended to foster more effective communications and working relationships among these various groups. Special action alerts are also published to the Fishlink® network as needed. The Fishlink® network and the Fishlink® newsletter are good organizing tools for those who care about our fisheries and are working together for a sustainable fisheries future.
