Whether we eat fish or not, we are directly affected by the state of the oceans. Yet, we continue to overfish our waters and spew toxins and garbage into our rivers, lakes and oceans with little thought to the impact on the planet and our health.
In this interview with David Suzuki, he chronicles his life-long connection with fish—from his first childhood memory of fishing with his father to the salmon derbies of Vancouver's past. Within his lifetime, David has witnessed enormous changes to our waters and many of his favourite fishing spots have disappeared. He once fished for sturgeon on B.C.'s Fraser River and halibut, flounder and salmon off of Vancouver's shores—an abundance that he took for granted and which seems unimaginable to younger generations.
