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.
