Babine Lake is the largest sockeye producing system in Canada, contributing millions of salmon to First Nations sustenance and commercial fisheries. Productivity has dropped in recent years and we are investigating concerns over spawning channel impacts on wild sockeye, as well as potential freshwater issues.
Our partnerships with First Nations have helped strengthen stewardship of salmon ecosystems. We believe collaboration between First Nations, local communities and conservation groups is the best way to protect salmon. We believe in creating benefits consistent with traditional values and economic systems.
