11/05/08 - Efforts to protect salmon must be 'salmon tough'

Author:

We need to be as tough as the salmon themselves if we're going to see their recovery. South Fork Nooksack River native spring chinook are almost extinct and need our help. It wasn't long ago when about 13,000 of these early-timed chinook came back to the river each year. They were the first salmon to arrive each spring, feeding Indian people after long winters, when no other salmon were in the river.
