BC’s Skeena Salmon Conservation Will Take Cooperation

You can point to a wide range of issues impacting wild salmon stocks along Canada’s west coast and beyond, and in many ways we all shoulder the blame. Restoring wild salmon stocks is also going to take a group effort, says Greg Knox, CEO of the Skeena Wild Conservation Trust. And yet, Gitxsan First nations chiefs have taken a different approach and are now demanding all forms of salmon fishing be shut down throughout the Skeena watershed as a conservation measure with one exception, their own.

This week on Blue Fish Radio we discuss why a group conservation effort is in the best long-term interests of the Skeena, its wildlife and the various communities that consider the Skeena home.
