BC’s wild salmon are in crisis. Only bold and decisive action will revive the province's stocks.
While we have had some success keeping this issue at the top of government's agenda by securing a Wild Salmon Secretariat and a Wild Salmon Advisory Council with a direct line to the Premier, the government's slow movement on removing fish farms out of migratory routes is unacceptable.
Fish farms are a major threat facing wild salmon, but they are also at risk due to overfishing, climate change and habitat loss. As we continue to push government to keep its promise to get fish farms out of migratory routes, we will proactively work to take action in these other areas so that we can help support this iconic BC species.
