Dedicated to Saving the Fraser River White Sturgeon


Founded in 1997, the Fraser River Sturgeon Conservation Society is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the conservation and restoration of wild Fraser River White Sturgeon.

Over the last decade, we at the Society have made great progress identifying and addressing issues that affect the recovery of white sturgeon in the Fraser River watershed using critical data collected through our award-winning, volunteer-driven monitoring and assessment program. We have developed a curriculum based education program and public awareness initiatives to promote community understanding of white sturgeon.

As an environmental stewardship and research organization, the Society brings together a diverse community of stakeholders – leaders, all areas of government and First Nations, commercial and recreational fishing sectors, research and education – to work together and make a difference for Fraser River white sturgeon. Priority areas include: mortality, habitat erosion, technology and recruitment of juvenile stocks.

Inspired by Founding and now Honourary Chair Rick Hansen, we deploy our resources and talents towards conserving and protecting Fraser River white sturgeon and their habitat. This is addressed through: the development and implementation of stewardship activities, education and public awareness initiatives; conducting research and communicating the results; and professionally addressing key issues facing sturgeon with appropriate actions.
