The Value of Lakelse Lake


A 1974 joint study by the Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans estimated that the annual income from the existence of Lakelse Lake was an astounding $101,641,000 (in year 2000 dollars).

We think that an update of this value would be useful in making decisions affecting the watershed. We are asking for the Regional District’s help on this.
