The Pacific Salmon Foundation’s Skeena Salmon Program is working to help foster healthy, diverse and abundant wild salmon populations in the Skeena Watershed.

The Skeena Salmon Program’s current focus is to help implement Fisheries and Oceans Canada’s Wild Salmon Policy (“the WSP”) in the Skeena Watershed. We view the Policy as a key tool for facilitating salmon conservation in British Columbia.

Our approach is to strengthen the technical foundation for implementing the WSP, by strategically expanding baseline scientific information and making it accessible to federal, provincial and First Nations governments, as well as industry, environmental stewards, and others. You can read about our specific projects here.

While our activities specifically support the technical aspects of salmon conservation and management, we recognize that the manner in which these aspects are understood and put into action will affect the environmental, cultural, and economic benefits of salmon to the communities of the Skeena region and beyond.
