“WHAT IS GOING ON WITH FRASER RIVER SALMON?"

Fraser River Dialogue #1

“WHAT IS GOING ON WITH FRASER RIVER SALMON?"

A Conversation with Dr. Brian Riddell, President and CEO, Pacific Salmon Foundation

Tuesday, March 7th, 2017 at the Fraser River Discovery Centre
6:30 – 7:30 pm: Wine and Cheese Reception
7:30 – 9:00 pm: Fireside Chat

 

The Fraser River remains the largest salmon river in North America, yet many of the salmon species that use it are in serious decline – and no one understands exactly why.

Meanwhile, the River faces increasing challenges – from development, resource projects, commercial transportation and global warming – that impact the balance between its environmental, social and economic priorities.

To help us better understand the situation with respect to Fraser River salmon, the FRDC will be hosting a conversation with Dr. Brian Riddell, an internationally recognized scientist and President and CEO of the Pacific Salmon Foundation, an independent, non-governmental organization dedicated to creating a sustainable future for wild Pacific salmon and their habitat.

FRDC Executive Director Stephen Bruyneel will use a “fire-side” chat format to have a discussion with Dr. Riddell about the environmental, social and/or economic aspects of Fraser River Salmon. That will be followed by a facilitated Q&A with the audience.
