Washington State Releases Update on Salmon Recovery

This month the Washington State Salmon Recovery Funding Board released its update on the status of salmon in the state of Washington. The website has a variety of tools including easy access to data on salmon population abundance throughout the state and recovery activities in each region. While the report tends to paint a picture that is slightly more friendly towards the state's track record on wild fish recovery, incremental progress is being made. Hundreds of millions of dollars have been spent on salmon recovery throughout the region, and as the good people at the Salmon Recovery Funding Board remind us, this spending has had tangible benefits to local communities and in some cases has resulted in real improvements in salmon habitat and population status.
