Public invited to help save Pacific salmon by sharing knowledge

Amateur and professional scientists are invited to a special event next week to share knowledge about salmon, and how to better protect them.

UBC’s Institute for Oceans and Fisheries is hosting the event at the Cowichan Community Centre. It’s being managed by Dr. Brian Riddell, a world-renowned expert on Pacific salmon.

The Salmon Dialogues aim to collect local knowledge from communities and salmon scientists with the goal of more effectively rebuilding Pacific salmon production on the coast.

There are 14 dialogues being scheduled around BC, Duncan is hosting the third and final Island event.

Organizers hope the dialogues will help encourage more open communication and collaboration to rebuild Pacific salmon stocks, and identify what actions should be top priority.
