Department of Wild Salmon will link together the experience and knowledge of hundreds of salmon groups, First Nations, university departments and labs. We will use on the ground real-time information and cutting edge science to pinpoint the problems and empower communities to manage the impacts on wild salmon from a local level with a province-wide perspective, keeping each group financially independent.
The first project of the Department of Wild Salmon is testing wild and farmed salmon in BC for European viruses. To accomplish this we are traveling through BC sampling, training First Nations, conservation societies, wilderness user groups and fishermen to take samples.
