Fraser sockeye run lower than expected

The Department of Fisheries is not optimistic about the number of sockeye salmon returning to the Fraser River.

DFO area director Jennifer Nener says numbers could pick up, but there has been fewer summer run sockeye than originally expected.

She says that means total returns could fall below the scant 2.3-million sockeye predicted to return this year.

Low returns mean commercial and recreational sockeye fisheries are not planned, with only First Nations food and ceremonial fisheries permitted.
