Lowest Salmon Returns In More Than A Century

According to the Pacific Salmon Commission the 2016 Fraser River Sockeye runs are the lowest in more than a century. Last week salmon experts with the Commission reviewed the data and found the lowest returning numbers ever since estimates began in 1893. The low return is having an effect on the native communities. Both Canadian and American fisheries remain closed to commercial salmon fishing.
