Skeena Salmon and Climate Change: Adapting to an Uncertain Future

Wednesday March 7, 2018  12:00pm-1:00pm

The Old Church (corner of First Avenue and King Street) - Smithers, BC

About this presentation
This talk will look at what impacts we are already seeing and experiencing in the Skeena watershed. It will also explore the changing conditions in our coastal waters and the North Pacific that have a large impact on how many fish return each year. The Skeena and its people are well positioned to adapt to these changes—a discussion on what we might see in future years and how we can adapt and give our fish the best possible chance to thrive into the future will be a key focus of the presentation.
