The Prince Rupert Port Authority is helping fund five Skeena River salmon enhancement and sustainability projects.

The five projects worth more than $163-thousand dollars are the first investments under the port authority’s Skeena River Salmon Enhancement Program announced earlier this year.

The port authority has dedicated $1-million dollars to partner with North Coast organizations to maintain and rehabilitate critical river habitat.

Among the new projects is a year-round study of the biological, chemical, physical and geological characteristics of local inland waters to identify factors that may be limiting sockeye salmon.
