Sunday@4: The Future Of Pacific Salmon; February 23, 2020 @ 4:00pm – 5:00pm; Dick Beamish, Pacific Biological Station (free)


Pacific salmon abundance in the North Pacific is the largest in history. However, we are seeing poor returns in British Columbia with the worst ever return of sockeye to the Fraser River in 2019. It is time to understand what is going on.

An Emeritus Scientist at the Pacific Biological Station in Nanaimo, Dick has received a number of awards including the Order of Canada, Order of BC and a Nobel Peace Prize in 2007, as a member of the International Panel on Climate Change. Closer to home, he received an Honorary Doctor of Science degree from Vancouver Island University.  His contributions to scientific research on Pacific salmon have earned him numerous prestigious awards from the scientific community.  As editor and contributor to the award-winning book The Sea Among Us – The Amazing Strait of Georgia he showed skill at making a complex subject easy to understand for non-scientists.
