The second season of the catch clip release program has started in the Southern Great Bear Rainforest. Guides from both Blackfish Lodge and Nimmo Bay Resort have been catching salmon and collecting samples.
Last season over 400 samples were collected and are currently being used by DFO and Genomes Canada to give us a better understanding of salmon populations in our area.
This year there is a major emphasis on coho and chum collections, which our partners are interested in. River Conditions have been better in the region than this time last year thankfully making things easier on the migrating salmon.
