According to the New Scientist, Fedje has discovered evidence of a prehistoric lake and streambed about 50 metres below the surface at a site called Section Cove, as well as signs that the river and lake were once rich sources of salmon -- an "irresistible" food source for ancient coastal migrants.

A book published in 2003 by Canadian author Tom Koppel summarized the research projects being carried out along the Pacific Coast while weaving a powerful argument in favour of coastal migration.

"We have been accustomed to thinking of ourselves as a species in terrestrial terms -- evolving in the savanna of Africa; hunkering in caves in Europe; gradually spreading overland through Asia; and finally trekking dry-shod across a land bridge at the Bering Strait into the Americas while preying upon big ice age animals,'' he wrote in Lost World -- Rewriting Prehistory: How New Science is Tracing America's Ice Age Mariners.

But if the scientists on the Pacific coast were right, we also became bold seafarers at a very early date, maritime people who built boats and braved the stormy and icebound shores of the North Pacific."
