The Pacific Salmon Foundation (PSF) has just released a suite of new resources on wild Pacific Salmon and climate change, including recordings from workshops and webinars that are open to the public. These recordings are the result of efforts that brought together more than 150 experts from the scientific community to identify challenges and potential solutions to help salmon better adapt to climate change.

The recordings of PSF VP of Salmon Jason Hwang and PSF Science Advisor Brian Riddell’s presentations from the recent Climate Adaptation for Salmon Workshop can be found here.

 Listen to the presentation on First Nations perspectives on climate change and salmon in the Upper Fraser by Gord Sterritt, Executive Director of the Upper Fraser Fisheries Conservation Allliance.

Explore the presentation by Dr. Francis Zwiers, Director of the Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium, on climate projections for BC salmon

Dive into SFU Liber Ero Chair of Coastal Science and Management Dr. Jonathan Moore’s presentation on Climate Change in Salmon Systems

And finally, watch program head for State of the Salmon Program at Fisheries and Oceans Canada Sue Grant’s presentation on State of Salmon and Climate Change Considerations

Recordings are also now available from PSF’s Salmon Matters webinar series, including the most recent episode on Seaweed Aquaculture and potential benefits to BC Salmon. Seaweed farming is attracting more and more interest in B.C. as a solution for providing a sustainable food source and creating much-needed jobs in indigenous and small coastal communities. In mid-march the United Nation Global Compact launched a ‘Seaweed Manifesto’ with a suite of goals including: food security for developing nations; carbon capture to offset climate change; support for biodiversity in marine ecosystems; and, to provide jobs and generate economic development.

Watch PSF’s recent Salmon Matters with Chair of Cascadia Seaweed, Bill Collins, on how seaweed aquaculture could benefit B.C. or listen in to the podcast on Spotify.

 Salmon Matters is series about salmon issues and solutions. It is a partnered program of Conversations that Matter produced by Oh Boy Productions.
