Do wild BC salmon have a future?
British Columbia has one of the world’s most diverse and interconnected coastal ecosystems. Pacific Salmon’s majestic migration from river to ocean is a cultural and ecological hallmark of the region. However, dramatic fluctuations in Salmon populations have raised alarming questions about human impact on the coast’s environment and the fragility of the entire ecosystem. Questions that can only be answered with long-term, collaborative and ambitious research partnerships. Join representatives from British Columbia’s Hakai Institute, UBC’s Institute for the Oceans and Fisheries, and the UBC Centre for Aquaculture & Environmental Research as they discuss the interconnected web of changing seascapes, food webs, and ocean conditions impacting the BC coast, and its wild Pacific Salmon.
