  • Zoned RS-1 (Residential Salmon-1)

    This publication describes what municipalities can do to protect salmon habitats.

  • Wild Salmon Mortality Caused by Fish-Farm Sea Lice

    This bulletin summarizes the research results of a peer-reviewed study that investigates the impact of sea lice infections on wild salmon caused by fish farms. The study shows that fish farms are changing the way wild salmon get infected with parasites. As a result, up to 95 per cent of wild juvenile pink and chum salmon are dying from sea lice infections in coastal British Columbia. This increases the weight of evidence that current open net pen farming must change. More »
