Spences Bridge area fishery in danger of closure

One local economy could be in serious trouble as concerns continue to circle the fishing industry this season.

A fishery in the Thompson-Nicola Regional could see itself closed down pending a decision from the federal department of fisheries and oceans.

The closure would be to prevent the extinction of steelhead trout.

This gives more bad news to a community already suffering as the Spences Bridge area has already seen multiple businesses shut down due to fading fishing returns.

Thompson-Nicola Director Steven Rice says the closure could be a final nail for a community already suffering economically.
