Description

Fraser River Dialogue: The Salish Sea Marine Survival Project: Findings and Next Steps
Dr. Brian Riddell, CEO, Pacific Salmon Foundation

The Salish Sea Marine Survival Project (SSMSP) - coordinated by the non-profits, Vancouver-based Pacific Salmon Foundation (PSF) and Seattle-based Long Live the Kings (LLTK) – is a 5-year, $20 million, ecosystem-based, interdisciplinary and transboundary study involving government, universities, private consultants, local communities, and not-for-profit groups to address one key question:

What are primary factors affecting juvenile Chinook, coho & steelhead survival in the Salish Sea marine environment?

PSF launched the program in 2014, and since that time researchers have been studying young salmon and steelhead growth, health, and diet in the Salish Sea; tracking fish and marine mammal movements; monitoring marine conditions; and developing innovative technologies to answer critical questions facing salmon recovery and sustainable fisheries. The Program is now in its final year, and Dr. Brian Riddell, PSF’s CEO, will be reporting out on findings to date.

Everyone is welcome and light refreshments will be served.

This special event will be free to attend, but seating is limited so pre-registration is recommended.
