Download Flash Player to view this content.

The Cohen Commission has released the names of witnesses who will be appearing on the stand next. In two weeks, they will give testimony on what happened during the 2009 Fraser sockeye salmon season. One name is netting a lot of interest amongst fish farm opponents -- Kristi Miller. Miller is a top-level Fisheries and Oceans Canada scientist. Her recent findings on what's causing the decline of B.C. salmon stocks was allegedly muzzled by the Prime Minister's office. But she will talk at the Cohen Commission. And a fellow aquaculture expert can't wait to hear her. Alex Morton is a spokesperson for Salmon Are Sacred, and she spoke to Daybreak North's Carolina De Ryk.

To encourage thoughtful and respectful conversations, first and last names will appear with each submission to CBC/Radio-Canada's online communities (except in children and youth-oriented communities). Pseudonyms will no longer be permitted.
