We have completed (de)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.
“We were ecstatic to see it was working. Seeing those fish made us realize that what we were doing was really necessary”Dave Scott, Raincoast Lower Fraser Salmon Program Coordinator
