Rock slide caused ‘almost complete loss’ of early salmon runs at Fraser River

Early runs of Stuart sockeye and chinook salmon were devastated last year because they couldn’t make it past a massive landslide on British Columbia’s Fraser River, government officials said Tuesday.

The officials with Fisheries and Oceans Canada told a Commons committee that 99 percent of early Stuart and 89 percent of early chinook salmon were lost.
