Other Fish Species
Although conserving salmon is Watershed Watch’s primary focus, since we take a “watershed” approach to environmental conservation, we also deal with a few other important fish species in the Fraser River and BC’s coastal ecosystems. Our work on Fraser River sturgeon and eulachon stems from our work with our neighbours the Kwikwetlem First Nation. Many of the habitat and general conservation issues affecting sturgeon and eulachon also apply to Fraser River salmon species. Watershed Watch also applies its expertise on fisheries issues to groundfish species in an attempt to improve fisheries management and protect endangered stocks.
