The Waters Around Us - predicting climate change impacts on the Salish Sea
with Richard Alexander, Senior Fish Biologist
On this evening Richard will help us make sense of the challenges that climate change will pose on the waters around the Saanich Peninsula and the Islands - in particular how the warming waters will affect fish stocks, their habitat and impact the fisheries. To help gain perspective and context we’ll learn the short history about how we got here, our current state of affairs, where the experts believe we are headed and finally what we can do to protect our valuable fisheries resources and the area we love, now and in the future. Richard has been tracking and forecasting salmon returns for over 25 years and is in a great position to share his thoughts on the way forward. This is an important evening and one you won’t want to miss.
