History of salmon in the Columbia basin

This was the first webinar in the Winter Webinar Series hosted in partnership between the Kootenay Conservation Program and the Columbia Basin Watershed Network.

Presentation by Will Warnock, Canadian Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fisheries Commission

This session will give a description of the historic distribution of Sockeye and Chinook salmon and Steelhead in the Columbia Basin in Canada and their role in the ecosystem. Following precipitous development of hydroelectricity after salmon were extirpated, the ecosystem of the Columbia basin changed markedly. Learn more about these changes, as well as challenges and potential for restoring salmon all the way through their historic range.
