CVN members will be interested in Dr. John Neilson’s report to Conservancy Hornby Island on the need to protect herring in our area. The report is titled “The Science Case for a Marine Protected Area in Lambert Channel: Conservation Benefits for Pacific Herring,” and you can download it here.
CTV Vancouver Island reported on this. You can see their video here.
An online article by mycomoxvalleynow.com also covers this story in more detail. See it here.
The TV story gives equal time to the fishing industry which, of course, disputes the call for more protection. Read John’s report and the media coverage and judge for yourself.
