B.C. Salmon Run Threatened

See on Scoop.itPolitics and Business

VANCOUVER – A near record-low sockeye salmon run for Skeena River fisheries has cut off the catch in B.C., but conservation groups say Alaskan fishermen are not pulling in their nets, making the problem worse.”This is probably one of the lowest…

Dave Cottrell‘s insight:

Only time will tell if BC sockeye will recover.  Some recent studies suggest that there are cycles that are not as affected by fishing as once thought.  A really low return, such as what is being seen this year, could simply be the other end of the cycle for this particular group.  More studies are certainly needed.
