Helicopters are carrying nearly 1,500 salmon daily past the landslide that came down nearly two months ago in a remote section of the Fraser River, federal and provincial authorities say.
The Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) and the B.C. government said in their latest update Saturday that the daily haul has helped bring 17,391 fish upstream to spawn.
The landslide, which was first spotted near Big Bar in late June, created a five-metre waterfall that has been largely impossible for salmon to bypass on their own.
