Airlifting migrating salmon past a landslide in B.C.

A landslide in June created an obstruction on a remote stretch of the Fraser River, impeding migrating salmon heading upstream to spawn. A team has been using a helicopter to airlift batches of the fish above the obstruction. Video courtesy Big Bar Unified Command.
