Skeena Watershed Map

One of the world’s most prolific wild salmon and steelhead corridors, the Skeena’s undammed watershed serves as spawning ground for six salmon species, including coho, sockeye and some of the largest Chinook and steelhead ever recorded. The Skeena’s commercial and sport fisheries generate more than $100 million a year, rivaling the economic impact of the forest industry.

But the Skeena watershed’s long-term well-being is at risk. More than $200 billion in oil and natural gas projects have been proposed for the region. The worst proposal would build a liquefied natural gas terminal over Flora Bank, an intertidal area used by 80% of the Skeena’s juvenile salmon as they enter salt water.
