Our Work

The Skeena Fisheries Commission has over 30 years of success conducting aquatic science programs throughout the Skeena River Watershed. We also work outside of the Skeena with First Nations interested in conducting science programs in collaboration with our team. Data from our programs meet international standards for peer review, and over the years we’ve published many peer-reviewed papers.

We’ve compiled one of the most robust data sets for salmon and habitat in British Columbia, which supports fisheries priorities, objectives, and decision making for our Member Nations. Our data is also used by Indigenous, provincial, and federal government agencies to support fisheries management and conservation objectives.
