Speaking For the Salmon Tackling Disease Issue


Since 1998 Simon Fraser University has hosted Speaking for the Salmon workshops, bringing together the foremost experts in the field to address the issues facing wild salmon populations in the Province and throughout the North Pacific. The latest seminar titled, Managing for Uncertainty: Pathogens and Diseases in Pacific Salmon is being hosted this week and will focus on recent developments surrounding disease in British Columbia and its effect on salmon population dynamics. The meeting will bring together experts from a variety of backgrounds including some of the central figures in salmon research and policy in BC and will culminate with a free public presentation Thursday December 1st at 9:00 PM in Room 1900, SFU Harbour Centre, 515 West Hastings, Vancouver.
