Salmon fisheries in BC have been under significant threat. This issues, as stated by Alex Pennock in the article “Fish tales: the Collapse of BC’s Wild Salmon”, is one that is due to insufficient funding by the government. The article states that a policy for salmon management was created in 2005 by the DFO called “Canada’s Wild Salmon Policy”. This policy was originally thought of as a hopeful change, but was later found out to be ineffective. Salmon spawns continued to decline, and the DFO was unable to figure out why.
