The Skeena River in northwestern British Columbia, Canada

The Skeena and Bulkley Rivers merge in northern British Columbia in the Coast Mountain Range to form the seaward side of the Skeena, which then emerges tothe west into the islands and ocean just south of Prince Rupert. This vast and isolated area is not densely populated and has a long history of occupation by the native peoples (First Nations). The Skeena and Bulkley Rivers are prime salmon rivers and the native fishery is prominent here.

Old Salmon Boat 2 - Port Edward, British Columbia

Port Edward on the NW coast of British Columbia, just south of Prince Rupert, is the site of the old north pacific cannery where for decades many of the salmon caught and canned for sale around the world were caught, landed and processed. The old cannery is no longer in use and much of the operational gear is slowly fading away. There are several of the old salmon boats used for landing the catches remaining, in various states of decay, subject to the weather and rot. Their life is done and now they bring back only memories.

Port Edward, British Columbia - Nature Reclaims

At Port Edward on the isolated NW coast of British Columbia, nature is reclaiming the ruins of an old landing wharf at the North Pacific cannery, near Prince Rupert. The incessant rain on this coast simply rots wood and provides a fertile place for trees to sprout, mosses to generate and timber to decay
