Two SFU researchers will sit on a six-member scientific panel that will independently advise the Cohen Commission of Inquiry into the Decline of Sockeye Salmon in the Fraser River.

John Reynolds, a fisheries biologist and Tom Buell BC Leadership Chair in Salmon Conservation, and Patricia Gallaugher, director of the Centre for Coastal Studies, are the SFU appointees.

The panel will advise the Cohen Commission’s research team on scientific issues and findings related to its hearings to investigate and report on the decline of Fraser River sockeye.

The federal government has tasked the commission with making recommendations for improving the sustainability of Fraser River sockeye, including, as required, changes to the Department of Fisheries and Oceans’ policies, practices and procedures.
