DFO engages in coverup as steelhead teeter on the brink

The number of steelhead returning to the Thompson and Chilcotin watersheds is the lowest ever recorded, according to a spawning population estimate by the provincial government. Both populations are classified as an Extreme Conservation Concern.

However, Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) has refused to disclose scientific documents related to the looming extinction of B.C.’s Interior Fraser steelhead runs, even after a federal investigator was assigned to demand their release.
