The pressure we've put on wild salmon has created serious management challenges, according to John Paul Fraser, Executive Director of the B.C. Salmon Farmers Association. Fraser is familiar with the subject of managing west coast salmon, "I worked for Hon. David Anderson in the mid-1990s when he was the Minister Responsible for Department of Fisheries and Oceans."
