Every year in B.C.’s coastal waters, there are fewer and fewer wild salmon.
Lawyer Keegan Pepper-Smith, who works for the non-profit Ecojustice, says wild chinook salmon in particular “are facing imminent extinction.”
There are different possible reasons for the decline, but Pepper-Smith says not enough is being done to keep salmon safe from a potentially deadly disease called PRV.
