I am very very excited to be returning to the rivers I spent all of last fall on, watching salmon like this chum battling their way upriver. This time there won’t be any salmon…
The Steveston Jetty is only one of the many structures dividing the Fraser estuary, altering the movement of salmon, freshwater, and fine sediments to Sturgeon and Roberts Banks.
Found this chiton plate on Calvert Island, on the way to Koeye. Chitons (a type of mollusc) have eight over-lapping plates on their back; it’s easy to see why the plates are also called “butterfly shells”. Did you know: Chitons have magnetite-covered teeth, which is unique among animals!
