What A Difference A Year Can Make ~ Sockeye Salmon Return To British Columbia’s Fraser River

Early predictions are this year’s Fraser River Sockeye salmon run could be the biggest run on the river since 1913! With an estimated 25-million sockeye expected, this is welcome news especially after the disastrous 2009 season when just over one million salmon returned.  Clearly, the four-year salmon life cycle is dictated by the rhythms of Mother Nature.  We can only observe and remain hopeful that future runs will remain equally strong.
