Institute of Ocean Sciences October 8 and 9th, 2008
Hosted by the Raincoast Conservation Foundation
Workshop of the Salmon Nutrient Research Community

View the Poster (PDF)

Leading scientists in the salmon nutrient and paleolimnology fields reviewed sediment core studies conducted in BC and Alaskan sockeye lakes. The goal of the workshop was to better understand what paleolimnological techniques can tell us about long-term changes in salmon escapements and lake ecology relative to salmon harvesting and climate change.

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.
