Keeping A Legend Alive:
Fraser River White Sturgeon

Our award-winning, volunteer-driven monitoring and assessment program tracks the population health of this prehistoric species and provides critical data for resource management.


As an environmental stewardship and research organization, the FRSCS 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, in-river fishery technology and recruitment of juvenile sturgeon.

Dedicated to Saving the

Fraser River White Sturgeon


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

For over 20 years, we 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.

As an environmental stewardship and research organization, the FRSCS 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, in-river fishery technology and recruitment of juvenile stocks.

Inspired by Founder and Honorary 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. Our Board of Directors and Advisors are listed here.


The FRSCS Board of Directors is committed to supporting actions designed to accelerate the pace of recovery and protection of White Sturgeon as well as taking evidence-based positions on key issues related to Fraser River fisheries as well as habitat.  Current position statements are listed below with links.
