Taking a big picture approach is exactly what Christopher Bos (above) and the South Vancouver Island Anglers Coalition (SVIAC) is doing with their plans for introducing millions of chinook salmon into the Pacific. Tired of watching their ecosystem slowly deteriorate due to a host of documented pressures, this group of concerned citizens is taking action. Their goal: to introduce enough salmon into the Pacific Ocean off the south end of Vancouver Island to ensure an ample supply of food for the three area Orca pods. SVIAC understands that if the apex predator in the system is doing well, then the entire ecosystem is strong.
