Dear Division 16,
We have been discussing the health of rivers in our Hydrosphere integrated unit. For this week’s assignment, I’d like you to read at least two of the following articles about the Cohen Report.
The Cohen report was started in 2009 when there was a surprising decline in the salmon population in BC. The articles below are responses to the Cohen report and are posted in order from old to new. Check the dates of the articles when you read them. The last one is a current article.
For your response, please consider the information in this article. In your post, please respond to the information you’ve read and comment on the position that there are multiple reasons for the reduction in the salmon stocks. In your response, please comment on what steps you think ought to be taken to protect the Fraser River sockeye salmon. Include in your response any connections you make to information provided by our guest speakers so far.
I look forward to your responses!
