small northern coastal community is on Porcher Island about 42 km (26
mi ) south of the port of Prince Rupert. Oona River's history began when
Scandinavian settlers came to homestead this area in the early 1900's.
The community's economic base was centred on the resource industries of
fishing and logging. There have been 102 boats built in Oona River and
there are still boat shops that exist today. The area surrounding Oona
River is combined with oceanic waterways, small coastal inlets and islands
and its proximity to Skeena River.
