Preserving the cold water habitats of wild salmon is critical. Ocean Wise is exploring both the systematic and climate-focused efforts needed to protect this iconic Pacific Northwest species.
Partnership for Salmon Health
Protecting B.C.’s salmon requires a coordinated approach across their natal watersheds to ensure we can have thriving salmon runs that promote true reconciliation with First Nations communities and strong livelihoods for fishing communities — with plenty left over for nature.
Using innovative environmental DNA sampling of Pacific salmon smolts, we assess local ecosystem health to inform estuary management strategies and preserve habitat.
