Outdoor Canada is pleased to present Blue Fish Radio—podcasts about the future of fish and fishing in Canada. The program, produced and hosted by Lawrence Gunther, is dedicated to sharing first-hand angling knowledge, scientific discoveries and supporting local champions who protect and enhance their waters.
In this episode, host Lawrence Gunther talks to Lena Azeez (above), from the Watershed Watch Salmon Society. Azeez is working with flood-prone communities from British Columbia’s lower mainland to build fish habitat safeguards into their flood prevention strategies. Habitat safeguards are often a low priority when communities worry about rising water, but Azeez says one doesn’t have to come at the expense of the other.
