Abstract: The need for a conservation strategy for fishers in British Columbia has become increasingly apparent in recent years. Continued changes in the composition and distribution of adequate habitat, increased trapping pressure in previously inaccessible areas, combined with harvests during trapping seasons has likely increased the vulnerability of fisher populations in the province. To confound conservation problems facing this species, the effectiveness of past management strategies is unknown and relatively little is known about fisher ecology in British Columbia. These factors have contributed to the persistent classification of fisher populations in the province as “Blue-listed”. Past management strategies for fishers have been very limited in scope and success. Harvest seasons for fishers were closed for 2 years during 1990-92, but the harvest of fishers (through incidental kills) remained basically unchanged...
