Response Statement - Eulachon, Fraser River population

This short-lived semelparous species is extremely rich in lipid and spends over 95% of its life in the marine environment. This population’s spawning biomass reached a historic low of only 10 t in 2008. The long term average spawning biomass on the Fraser River may have been about 1000 t. Based on the available spawning stock biomass time series, the 10-year decline rate was estimated to be 98%. The single small spawning area constitutes a single location.
