Vancouver International Airport recently set another global record by becoming the first airport in the world to be salmon-safe certified. The certification acknowledges YVR’s ongoing efforts and commitment to transform land and water management practices, protect Fraser River water quality and enhance the habitat so Pacific salmon continue to thrive.

Salmon-Safe is active across British Columbia, Oregon and Washington. Pacific Salmon Foundation and Fraser Basin Council co-manage Salmon-Safe in British Columbia, in partnership with Salmon-Safe Inc. in Portland.
