Greg Taylor, Senior Fisheries Advisor with Watershed Watch’s Salmon Society, provides a regional breakdown of the 2017 wild salmon returns along Canada’s Pacific coast, and shares his findings and conclusions
Taking a big picture approach is exactly what Christopher Bos and the Anglers Coalition is doing with their plans for introducing millions of Chinook salmon into the Pacific. Tired of watching their ecosystem slowly deteriorate due to a host of documented pressures, this group of concerned citizens is taking action. Their goal, to introduce enough salmon into the Pacific Ocean off the south end of Vancouver Island to ensure an ample supply of food for the three area Orca pods, J, K and L. They understand that if the apex predator in the system is doing well, then the entire ecosystem is strong. Listen to this week’s Blue fish Radio interview with the Coalition’s president, Christopher Bos, as we hear first-hand about their plans to bring about positive change.
