Seymour River Endangered

 

Last week the Outdoor Recreation Council on BC announced their 2016 Endangered Rivers List and the Seymour River was on the top. Mark Angelo, council chair, made the announcement at a press release at Swinburn Drive on the lower Seymour. He interviewed staff, Brian and Marc as well as Eric, our broodstock angler and board member.

We are grateful to the Council for acknowledging the urgency of this critical situation facing the Seymour River. Clearly not a list that we want to stay on, we are working very hard with all our partners, who include Tsleil-Waututh and Squamish Nations, Metro Van, DFO, the District and City of North Van, and the Province, to mitigate the impacts of the rockslide and allow fish migration upstream once again.”  –  Brian Smith
