Bc resident here.
Our industries and logging has definitely caused some damage to salmon populations. In response we have built salmon hatcheries that are staffed mainly by volunteers and regulated use of industries near water supplies .
In BC you can go to almost any river or stream and find spawning salmon at the right time of year. Our water is insanely clean. And our commercial fisheries are tightly regulated if you get caught cheating, you can lose your boat.
The life cycle of the Pacific salmon takes it out far into the Pacific Ocean, and here is where the bulk of the problem lies.
Massive overfishing outside of our territorial waters by other countries, is decimating out stocks.
Every year in our hatcheries we grow millions of salmon and release them into the wild.
But they dont come home.
This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 83%. (I'm a bot)
Half of Canada's chinook salmon are endangered, with nearly all other populations in precarious decline, according to a new report, confirming fears that prospects for the species remain dire.
Chinook salmon have long been a critical part of the ecosystem in British Columbia.
Chinook salmon are also a critical source of food for the endangered south resident killer whale, which the federal government has spent millions of dollars attempting to protect.
I would have Guessed overharvesting by humans was killing them.
Instead it's either too many otters/sea lions or climate change.
What does a salmon alarm sound like?
Fine. I'll just eat the other half then.
Salmon shouldn't be flying helicopters
Alaska will be next. We need to keep the Chinese ships out of our waters and stop selling fishing licenses to tourists.
That alarm is wrecking my chill dude,can't play fortnite with that racket ,man....reaches over and unplugs it.
Guys it's fine the only fish I like is tuna. I don't understand why all you environmentalist types have to freak out about stuff like this /s
Oh your sounding the alarm????
Aren’t your donors and sponsors responsible for this?
I just realized a perfect way to hunt chinook salmon. You try and find a big enough helicopter so you can hover it over the water, just low enough so that the back cargo bay touches the water, and then you can reverse the helicopter and make the salmon fall into it, like a big mouth!
Put keep importing 300.000+ more people per year.
Canada geese are good to eat, right?
I love wild caught king salmon so i will rationalize this news by reminding myself that one salmon every month won't hurt anything.
