Wild Salmon plays a vital role in the ecosystems of BC. Many coastal and inland communities, rich with cultural diversity and history, are connected by the Fraser River Watershed and its wild salmon. This is their story, their quest to save the wild salmon, their sustenance, their livelihood. After a drastic decline in the Fraser River sockeye salmon in 2009, First Nations communities and environmentalists in BC came together with a common goal – to save wild salmon from infectious diseases spread through open-net fish farms. A rally in 2010 galvanized the movement and raised the profile of the issue.
