Blue Fish Radio: Both Good News and Bad News for B.C.’s Salmon

Good News and Bad News for B.C.'s Salmon

The Pacific Salmon Foundation’s CEO discusses an exciting research program, and B.C.’s looming water-level crisis

Outdoor Canada is pleased to present Blue Fish Radio—podcasts about the future of fish and fishing in Canada. The program is dedicated to sharing first-hand angling knowledge, scientific discoveries and supporting local champions who protect and enhance their waters.

In this episode, Lawrence Gunther talks with Brian Riddell, CEO of the Pacific Salmon Foundation, about the new Salish Sea Marine Survival Project—a $20 million international partnership to research Pacific Salmon. But the PSF also has deep concerns about upcoming 2015 season. The lack of snow in British Columbia’s mountains means low water levels, and potentially tough conditions for returning salmon—the foundation of B.C.’s ecosystems.
