Alaska salmon runs are increasingly threatened. Loss of habitat, poor management and uncertain food supplies are but a few reasons. Some of these things are within our control. Some are not.
That’s why we need to protect the habitat we know is vital to salmon survivorship. When you look across the globe at the decline of once-proud salmon runs — from Europe to the Pacific Northwest — the one thing we know about our limited understanding of salmon is that they need clean flowing waters and healthy streamside habitats to endure.
