The Salmon People podcast – Hiding the Scientist

EPISODE 5: The salmon had been returning to the Fraser River for hundreds of years. In 2009, they didn’t. When whale biologist, Alex Morton’s day to testify at the Cohen Commission arrived, she was full of adrenaline. She could tell people what she had been seeing with the salmon for the past two decades. And she would reveal what she had found in the 500,000 pages of government documents submitted to the inquiry. Documents that had only been released to inquiry witnesses, and would go back under lock and key the moment the inquiry was over. It should have been a perfect Hollywood moment — like key scenes from Erin Brockovich, Dark Waters or even The Verdict. And when Alex made key documents public, they revealed how the health of wild salmon had been ignored by Fisheries and Oceans for decades.

The Salmon People podcast – the Game Changer

EPISODE 4: The salmon had been returning to the Fraser River for hundreds of years. In 2009, they didn’t. Or barely did. Nine million sockeye salmon were missing. Stephen Harper, prime minister at the time, was not a man known for promoting science, but the catastrophic loss forced him to call an inquiry. For the first time, there would be money, time and people testifying under oath about events leading to the disappearance of the wild salmon.

The Salmon People podcast – a 20-year battle to save Canada’s wild salmon

EPISODE 3: When Alex left the orcas behind to study deadly sea lice, she knew she couldn’t be everywhere, so she gathered an army of sea lice helpers — citizen scientists from all over northern Vancouver Island willing to collect smolts and count sea lice for her research. An unlikely detective, whale biologist, Alexandra Morton would be pulled into a battle against government, industry and multinational corporations. A story like this one should have been an “Erin Brockovich moment”. But it didn’t quite play out that way.

The Salmon People podcast: The Gold Rush

EPISODE 2: If you take a boat along the coast of northern British Columbia, you’ll see towering deciduous trees and snow-capped peaks, small islands, big islands and scattered throughout it all … fish farms. Dozens of them. Alexandra Morton remembers their arrival — remembers the Gold Rush when anyone who wanted a fish farm license got one. And she remembers how the government tricked coastal people into pointing out the best wild salmon habitat. The Salmon People podcast is a co-production between award-winning journalist Sandra Bartlett and Canada’s National Observer.

The Salmon People podcast: The Unlikely Detective

EPISODE 1: Some victims don’t have voices. Off the coast of British Columbia, wild salmon started dying by the millions. Chris Bennett runs Blackfish Lodge, 300 kilometers north of Vancouver where Canada’s West Coast crumbles into the Pacific Ocean. His guests are from all over the world. They come to see B.C.’s wildlife, but especially the salmon. Chris was out with a group of tourists when he looked into the water alongside his boat and noticed young salmon — called smolts — acting strangely. He drove down the coast with a few smolts in a bucket to show to Alexandra Morton, a neighbor who studied orcas. It was the first clue in a mystery of disappearing salmon, and Alex, an unlikely detective, stepped up.
