Fraser River Dialogue #1
“WHAT IS GOING ON WITH FRASER RIVER SALMON?"A Conversation with Dr. Brian Riddell, President and CEO, Pacific Salmon Foundation
Tuesday, March 7th, 2017 at the Fraser River Discovery Centre
The Fraser River remains the largest salmon river in North America, yet many of the salmon species that use it are in serious decline – and no one understands exactly why.
Meanwhile, the River faces increasing challenges – from development, resource projects, commercial transportation and global warming – that impact the balance between its environmental, social and economic priorities.
To help us better understand the situation with respect to Fraser River salmon, the FRDC will be hosting a conversation with Dr. Brian Riddell, an internationally recognized scientist and President and CEO of the Pacific Salmon Foundation, an independent, non-governmental organization dedicated to creating a sustainable future for wild Pacific salmon and their habitat.
FRDC Executive Director Stephen Bruyneel used a “fire-side” chat format to have a discussion with Dr. Riddell about the environmental, social and/or economic aspects of Fraser River Salmon. That was followed by a facilitated Q&A with the audience.
