Title: Nations net Chinook in Alberni Inlet

Year: 2005

Author(s): David Wiwchar, Ha-Shilth-Sa

Type: Newspaper Article

Description:
Port Alberni - Large halogen lights shine across the Fishermen's Wharf and over the water beside the Alberni Quay as hundreds of Tseshaht and Hupacasath fishers sell their late night Chinook catches to waiting buyers. The wharf is a constant frenzy of activity as fishers empty their catches into steel brailers, which are then hoisted 20-feet up onto the dock by a truck crane and dumped into large plastic totes. When the brailer door is opened, hundreds of pounds of large, slippery Chinook slide out, slapping against each other as they drop into the tote. Small forklifts noisily push the filled totes across the rough asphalt dock surface and load them into waiting transport trucks which then rush the fish to plants in Parksville, Nanaimo, and Vancouver for processing....

Title: Sea lice (Lepeophtheirus salmonis) infection rates on juvenile pink (oncorhynchus gorbuscha) and chum (Oncorhynchus keta) salmon in the nearshore marine environment of British Columbia, Canada.

Year: 2004

Author(s): Alexandra Morton; Richard Routledge; Corey Peet; Aleria Ladwig

Type: Journal Article

Description:
This study compared sea lice (Lepeophtheirus salmonis) infestation rates on juvenile pink (oncorhynchus gorbuscha) and chum (Oncorhynchus keta) salmon in five nearshore areas of the British Columbia coast selected on the basis of proximity to salmon farms. A 10-week study in the Broughton Archipelago found sea lice were 8.8 times more abundant on wild fish near farms holding adult samon and 5.0 times more abundant on wild fish near farms holding smolts than in areas distant from salmon farms. We found that 90% of juvenile pink and chum salmon sampled near salmon farms in the Broughton Archipelago were infected with more than 1.6 lice-(g host mass), a proposed lethal limit when the lice reach mobeile stages. Sea lice abundance was near zero in all areas without salmon farms. Salinity and temperature differences could not account for the higher infestation rates near the fish farms. The most immature life stages dominated the lice population throughout the study, suggesting the source of lice was a stationary, local salmonid population. No such wild population could be identified. The evidence from this control-impact study points to a relationship between salmon farms and sea lice on adjacent, wild, juvenile, salmon.
