The pink salmon run of 2013 has exceeded all expectations in many areas of the West Coast, with pinks in many rivers returning in numbers not seen in more than 50 years. Many people may think this was just a happy fluke of nature, but in reality, hard work and dedication has contributed to this remarkable recovery. A look at the Squamish River watershed demonstrates this.
The Pacific Region includes the province of British Columbia and the transboundary northern rivers of the Yukon. It encompasses more than 27,000 kilometres of coastline and 105 river systems. Fisheries and Oceans Canada is responsible for management and protection of marine resources on the Canadian west coast in addition to inland salmon fisheries.
