In 2010 the North American Salmon Stronghold Partnership declared the Harrison River and area to be the first Salmon Stronghold in Canada. Pacific salmon are a defining feature of west‐coast lifestyles and are central part of First Nations fishing cultures. Healthy wild salmon are a reflection of a healthy ecosystem and portends all of our futures.
This project is about understanding and preserving the attributes of a healthy salmon ecosystem that supports a salmon stronghold. By learning about what makes a salmon stronghold work, we can apply these lessons more broadly, sustaining both the salmon and our quality of life for future generations.
