Skeena 2024 Pre-Season Conditions and Forecast

How is it Affecting Wild Salmon?

Let’s take a look at what we’re expecting to see with salmon returns to the Skeena this summer. Here we cover pre-season forecasts, as well as some of the marine and freshwater conditions from the past five years that may influence this year’s salmon returns. In general, pre-season forecasting has become less accurate in recent years due to greater environmental variability – which is why we at SkeenaWild continue to advocate for sustainable fisheries with in-season monitoring and adaptability to in-season abundances and conditions.
