Low fishery expectations could make for another economic hit for Rupert

The predictions being made these days, are for the worst salmon season in fifty years for British Columbia. A situation so dire, that the Suzuki Foundation has “yellow card listed” many of BC’s major salmon rivers, describing such legendary rivers as the Fraser and Skeena as facing serious challenges.
.
The Skeena, long a major contributor to the local economy normally receives some 3 to 5 million returning fish in a normal cycle, this year it is expected to see but 1.5 million. A serious reduction in stocks that will have much of a spillover effect in Prince Rupert.
