Salmon Research Funded

Hillary Johnson

SkeenaWild research is getting a financial boost.

The Prince Rupert Port Authority is investing $50,000 in a partnership with SkeenaWild and its Skeena River Enhancement Project. 

The project uses salmon stock data gleaned from DNA information and sourced from fish scales collected as far back as 1913.

The project aims to establish certain outcomes, including a historical baseline of salmon stocks, future assessment of fish population and health, and determining which lakes and species are more susceptible to climate change.

The total price tag for the project is $160,000 and the Govenment of Canada, Simon Fraser University and other local environmental organizations are also contributing.
