The Northern Fund Committee emphasizes that priority will be placed on those projects that are located and operate within the Northern Fund’s geographic area and/or that concern stocks that contribute significantly to fisheries in that area.
The Northern Fund’s geographic area of interest is from Cape Suckling, Alaska in the north, to Cape Caution, British Columbia in the south (which encompasses southeast Alaska, northern and central British Columbia and the drainages of the Alsek, Taku and Stikine Rivers).

It is unlikely that funding will be provided to projects that propose activities physically located outside the Northern Fund’s geographic area or concern stocks that do not contribute significantly to fisheries within the Northern Fund’s geographic area of interest. All project proponents are strongly advised to consider the relevance of their proposed project outcomes to the Northern Funds goals and objectives.

- Goal 1
- Development of improved information for resource management, including better stock assessment, data acquisition and improved scientific understanding of limiting factors affecting salmon production in the freshwater and marine environments.
- This goal recognizes the need to obtain accurate annual estimates of catches and escapements for stocks that are crucial to the agreed regimes.
- Goal 2
- Rehabilitation and restoration of marine and freshwater fish habitat, and improvement of habitat to enhance productivity and protection of Pacific salmon.
- The primary objective of this goal is to focus on increasing the abundance of fish stocks by opening freshwater habitat to salmon spawning and rearing.
- Goal 3
- Enhancement of wild stock production through low technology techniques rather than through construction of large facilities with high operating costs. This includes acceptable refinements to existing enhancement facilities that will increase the productivity of those facilities.
- This goal recognizes the desire to enhance salmon populations where specific wild stocks are at levels well below their potential and where opportunities exist to generate returns that will contribute to fisheries without compromising wild stocks.
All proposals will be subject to review by the Northern Fund Committee process. In general, successful proposals will be those determined by the Northern Fund Committee to be consistent with the uses for which the fund may be expended and offering the greatest benefit in relation to the associated costs. Successful proposals will demonstrate:

- A clear connection between the proposals’ intended outcome and the purposes and objectives of the Pacific Salmon Treaty.
- A description of how and when information or data analysis generated by the project will be made available to both Parties to the Treaty.
- Evidence of a bilateral commitment to achieve project goals.
- The technical merits of the proposal through:
- Understanding of the problem.
- Soundness of the technical approach.
- Feasibility of the methods proposed.
- Innovation and uniqueness of the proposal.
- The proponent’s capabilities, experience and record of past performance, as well as the experience and qualifications of key personnel. Also, the extent to which outside partners and collaborators integral to the proposal’s success are available to support the proposal.
- A description of the benefits to be gained from successful completion of the project. Projects that offer long-term benefits will receive favorable consideration.
- The cost effectiveness of the proposal including the balance between project costs associated with labor and site costs as opposed to administration and overhead costs, and the extent to which other sources of funds may be leveraged in support of the proposal.
