Insurmountable: The battle to bring a salmon run home

In response to a significant landslide discovered between June 21 and 23, 2019 in a narrow portion of the Fraser River near Big Bar, just north of Lillooet, B.C., a unified command incident management team has been established. The incident transitioned to a project in December 2019.

Salmon Species at Risk
Based on the magnitude of the partial obstruction, a number of salmon species that are a significant conservation concern need to pass through the area. Species include:

Spring/Summer 5-2 Chinook
Early Stuart Sockeye
Early Summer Sockeye
Summer Run Sockeye
