Upper Bulkley and Morice Water and Salmon Sustainability Views: Inventory of Interests, Activities and Potential Collaborative Opportunities Among 36 Organizations

In the Upper Bulkley and Morice basins of the Skeena watershed, climate change and human induced stresses are contributing to the degradation of aquatic resources, including salmon populations. It is apparent that collaborative efforts to better manage and adapt to these stresses are needed. This project was an initial attempt to determine who might contribute to this collaboration. Interviews occurred with over 50 people representing 36 organizations, selected for their likely interests in water and salmon sustainability in general, and specifically in the Upper Bulkley and Morice basins. These organizations span multiple levels of government, including the Office of the Wet’suwet’en, non-government organizations, research institutions and industries. Views were solicited using three questions designed to discover interests in water and salmon sustainability in general, and specific to the Upper Bulkley and Morice basins, activities related to those interests, and views on how collaboration with others related to shared interests might occur.
