Pacific salmon are a keystone species in B.C., supporting ecosystems, culture, and more than $1 billion in economic activity. The people that care for them represent a breadth of vested and sometimes disparate stakeholders. During the last decade, the Pacific Salmon Foundation has launched some major initiatives that took a watershed-wide approach to salmon management by connecting multiple stakeholders and bridging information gaps.

Collaborating on watershed management

Our watershed conservation initiatives have brought together industry, First Nations, recreational fishers, community groups and government to share resources and information, and better understand the current state of salmon and their needs within these watersheds. Learn about our initiatives in the Skeena watershed, the Fraser River watershed, and targeted watersheds within the Thompson-Shuswap, Georgia Basin and Central Coast.
