"The Invisible Migration"

Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition writes: "Each year hundreds of millions of tiny wild salmon smolts begin an incredible journey. These young fish swim as far as 600km through the brown, swirling waters of the Skeena river to the sanctuary of the Skeena estuary. It's called the invisible migration because you can't see them below the high spring flows - but they're there - in giant plumes of baby salmon.

Did you know 93% of the entire Skeena watershed sockeye population comes from the Babine and 100% of all our salmon go to Skeena Estuary?

Lake Babine Nation Fisheries, the Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition and SkeenaWild Conservation Trust are hosting events across the watershed. Join the Celebration!"
