WFC Teams Up with Dr. Alexandra Morton at B.C. EventApril 26, 2011
Wild Fish Conservancy will team up with biologist and activist Dr. Alexandra Morton (salmonaresacred.org) May 10, at an event in Tofino, B.C. WFC biologist Audrey Thompson will present findings from two years of in-depth research on sea lice infection of Clayoquot’s wild salmon. There are many factors to consider in the decline of wild salmon across western B.C. such as harvest, predation, disease, aquaculture impacts and others. WFC will present data showing that parasitism by sea lice may be a key factor in the decline as well.
Presentation: Old Growth Forests, Pristine Rivers, Silent Waters: Searching for Answers. Researchers ask why an ecosystem with such exceptional freshwater habitat is experiencing drastic declines in the number of returning wild salmon.
