Pipelines and Salmon in Northern British Columbia

Potential Impacts

major pipeline projects have been proposed for northern British Columbia over
the next five years, including the Enbridge Northern Gateway Project. All of the proposed
pipelines would cross and at times run parallel to important salmon habitats in
the Upper Fraser, Skeena and Kitimat watersheds. This
report provides an overview of salmon resources in the affected watersheds and examines
pipeline construction and operation would impact salmon; the likelihood of
spills; and the impacts of a spill on salmon. The four page fact sheet, "Oil
and Salmon Don't Mix," highlights the importance of salmon in northern British
Columbia and gives an overview of the risks posed to salmon by the Enbridge oil
sands pipelines.
