Tomorrow July 17 at 10 AM, be there! Duncan Dam office/warehouse Meadow Creek BC.
Join Friends of the Lardeau River tomorrow at 10 AM to protest Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations plan to cull 200 Bull trout from the Duncan/Lardeau River system. Further insane Bull trout culling is planned by netting select tributaries of Kootenay Lake.
This is covert action by Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations – Province of British Columbia with no public consultation.
The facts are as follows:
—Fisheries Branch intends to cull an unknown-to-us-total of bull trout from the Kootenay Lake system.
—Tomorrow (Tuesday) July 17, the first phase is happening in the tailrace below Duncan Dam, where they aim to catch and cull up to 200. This phase is scheduled to start at 10AM.
—Later this summer, they intend to stretch nets across 3 rivers/creeks flowing into Kootenay Lake and catch/kill outmigrating bull trout.
Feel free to share.
