Presentation by Allen Larocque – Fish, Forests, Fungi: soils in the ‘salmon forests’ of BC

Abstract: Salmon come home to their natal streams each fall to spawn and die, and their corpses feed bears, wolves and other forest animals. These distribute carcasses deep into the forest, and animal urine and feces can carry nutrients kilometres from the sea. From these carcasses plants can gain access to nitrogen and other nutrients that encourage growth; hence salmon can ‘fertilize’ the forest. An often-overlooked component in this story is the soil; soils are incredibly active, living places full of bacteria and fungi that act as intermediaries between the salmon and the trees.
