Ghost Runs: The Future of Wild Salmon on BC’s North and Central Coasts

Raincoast’s recently published report on BC’s salmon stocks says new ways of managing Pacific salmon must be implemented if wild salmon, and the food web that depends on salmon, are to remain on BC’s central and north coasts. The report brings together conservation and academic interests to examine the issues surrounding the management of wild salmon.

Raincoast’s in-house scientists, collaborating graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and professors make us unique among conservation groups. We work with First Nations, academic institutions, government, and other NGOs to build support and inform decisions that protect aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, and the wildlife that depend on them. We conduct ethically applied, process-oriented, and hypothesis-driven research that has immediate and relevant utility for conservation deliberations and the collective body of scientific knowledge.

We investigate to understand coastal species and processes. We inform by bringing science to decision-makers and communities. We inspire action to protect wildlife and wildlife habitats.
