Life and death in the Somenos Basin.

Sounds like the start of a thriller, and in some ways, it is.

Fish biologist Dr. Dave Preikshot will be talking about the life, and all too often, the death of the coho salmon in the Somenos basin in a free public event Thursday, Oct. 27.

His talk, part of the Cowichan Watershed Board/Vancouver Island University monthly Speakers Series, starts at 7 p.m. in the Lecture Hall (Room 140) at VIU’s Cowichan Campus.

Preikshot has worked as a fisheries scientist with Fisheries and Oceans Canada and Madrone Environmental services and has helped conduct several research projects in the Strait of Georgia and is keenly interested in his subject.
