Summary of reported Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) catches and sightings in British Columbia and results of field work conducted in 2011 and 2012: Fs97-4/3061E-PDF ; Fs97-6/3061E-PDF
The Atlantic Salmon Watch Program (ASWP) operated 1991-2003 by Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) and the Province of British Columbia. The program monitored the abundance and distribution of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) in BC. Field surveys recommenced in 2011-12 only on systems deemed at highest risk of having established feral populations. These focused field efforts included; surveying Georgie Lake, Songhees River and nine other stream systems all considered to be the most likely to harbour established feral Atlantic salmon populations. No Atlantic salmon adults or juveniles were identified in any of these surveys.
