(The attached document was provided to the commission at the Chilliwack public forum as part of the submission by Elena Edwards.)

To determine what is necessary to ensure a healthy future for Fraser sockeye, the commission should consider why the Fraser River is fourth on the list of endangered B.C. rivers. Sewage, industrial agriculture, urban development, reduced protection for urban stream tributaries, transportation corridors, logging, gravel extraction and other factors have comprised salmon habitat. Wild salmon have also been negatively affected by fish farms, which introduce alien Atlantic salmon and promote the spread of disease. The commission should investigate traditional First Nations harvesting practices as an example of a sustainable fishery.
