About the fraser river

The Fraser River is the longest river in British Columbia, Canada, stretching over 1,375 km from its source in the Rocky Mountains to its mouth at the Strait of Georgia. The river is named after Simon Fraser, an explorer who mapped the river in the early 1800s. The Fraser River is a significant source of water for irrigation and hydroelectric power, with several reservoirs and dams along its course, including the W.A.C. Bennett Dam and the Site C Dam. The river also supports a thriving agricultural industry in the Fraser Valley, producing fruits and vegetables for local and international markets. Recreational activities such as fishing, boating, and swimming are popular along the river, which is home to several species of salmon and trout. The Fraser River has significant cultural and historical importance to Indigenous peoples, who have relied on its resources for thousands of years.
