BLUE FISH RADIO
Pacific Salmon Rescue Plan: Details and Reactions
Outdoor Canada is pleased to present Blue Fish Radio, podcasts about the future of fish and fishing in Canada. Produced and hosted by Lawrence Gunther, the program is dedicated to sharing first-hand angling knowledge and scientific discoveries, and supporting local champions who protect and enhance our waters.
In 2021, the federal government announced the Pacific Salmon Strategy, a $647 million, five year plan to save collapsing Pacific salmon stocks. The plan will put money into four pillars: conservation and stewardship, hatcheries, harvest transformation and integrated management. But will it do any good?
In this episode of Blue Fish Radio, producer/host Lawrence Gunther, talks to Aaron Hill (above left) from the Watershed Watch Salmon Society and Tom Davis (above right) from the Public Fishery Alliance. In back-to-back interviews they share their misgiving and expectations about whether this plan can actually save the salmon.
