Nass River

Summary

The Nass River is located in Northern British Columbia and drains 8,046 square miles over 240 miles from headwaters to the sea. Like the Skeena River to the south, the Nass is critically important as a remaining bastion for wild native fish who are commercially and culturally important to local people. The Nass is under threat from major development projects, over-fishing, and climate change. It is sparsely populated and relatively remote.
