YVR is proud to be the first airport in the world to achieve Salmon-Safe certification. This certification acknowledges our ongoing efforts and commitment to transform land and water management practices, to 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.
