Artist Comments:
The words “West Coast” and “salmon” go hand in hand. Salmon have been an integral feature in the survival of First Nations people and they continue to be part of an important food and fishing industry for BC. Unfortunately over-fishing, pollution, and land developments have endangered this most important species and the salmon runs have decreased in numbers over the years. I painted this panel to recognize the importance of this wild species of fish to our culture, our way of life.
