Beginning the Steveston Jetty

Great to see restoration of industrial landscapes to give juvenile salmon a chance to access the marshy habitat in the Fraser estuary.

“This week we break new ground…literally! Raincoast has now begun construction of three breaches of the Steveston Jetty. The Steveston Jetty is an 8 km long rock jetty which controls the position of the main arm of the Fraser River as it enters the estuary for the benefit of shipping. However, this restricts the movement of juvenile salmon. This project will greatly benefit juvenile salmon entering the estuary, just in time for this year’s juvenile out-migration season.”
