The Nechako Fisheries Conservation Program (NFCP) was established to implement the 1987 Settlement Agreement between Canada, B.C. and Alcan (now Rio Tinto). The Agreement anticipated modified flows in the Nechako River associated with the Kemano Completion Project (KCP) and the construction of a Kenney Dam Release Facility (KDRF).
The Program was developed to undertake an integrated set of monitoring programs, applied research and remedial measures to ensure the conservation of Nechako Chinook and the sockeye salmon that utilize the river as a migration corridor.
The Program has evolved significantly over the past thirty-three years and this website summarizes the evolution of the Program between 1988 through to the present.
