Salmon

Salmon

Salmon are affected by a wide variety of factors in the ocean and on land, including ocean and climatic conditions, dams, habitat loss, urbanization, agricultural and logging practices, water diversion, and predators (including humans). Salmon are an important source of spiritual and physical sustenance for Northwest Indian tribes, and they are symbolically important to many other residents of the Northwest.

Because salmon migrate so far when in the ocean, managing the ocean salmon fisheries is an extremely complex task.
