"Our sturgeon fishery, our salmon fishery is truly the beating heart of the entire 900-mile river." 

"It's really important that we have good science - accurate science - for the wild sturgeon and the wild salmon of the Fraser River."

Meet Dean Werk

These fish live to be 200 years or more, so four generations could have an opportunity to catch the exact same fish as I've caught.  This sustainable fishery...pretty cool!

Dean was born and raised in Chilliwack, British Columbia and has been fishing BC’s lakes and rivers for over 40 years.  He first became involved in the sport fishing industry 23 years ago and has been dedicated to the preservation of the White Sturgeon ever since.  Ensuring that this resource is here to share with our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren is key to his fulfillment.
