FREMP brings together the agencies responsible for setting and
enforcing environmental legislation and policy with those responsible
for land and water management. Together the FREMP partners coordinate
their long range planning and operational decision making to ensure
a sustainable future for the Fraser River estuary. FREMP partners
use a consensus-based approach to finding 'made in the estuary'
environmental management solutions.
The purpose of forming the FREMP partnership is to bring the resources
of all partners to facilitate the implementation of the actions
contained in the Estuary
Management Plan and to coordinate activities intended to achieve
primary objectives of FREMP are:
and enhance the environmental quality of the river and estuary
to sustain healthy fish, wildlife, plants and people;
and further the estuary's role as the social, cultural, recreational
and economic heart of the region; and,
human activities and economic development that protect and enhance
the environmental quality of the estuary.
