The Fraser River Strike in July 1900, also known as the Steveston Salmon Strike, is known as a milestone for the B.C. fishing industry. Canners had agreed earlier in the year to offer a uniform price for fish, but fishermen considered it too low. The strike united fisheries workers across ethnic lines and is notable for its duration and significance - martial law was imposed in Steveston.
