LLTK and PSF Launch Salish Sea Marine Survival Research Initiative
Last month, Long Live the Kings and the Canadian based Pacific Salmon Foundation officially launched their Salish Sea Marine survival project. The project, which seeks to bring together key research capacity from both Canada and the US has been in development for several years with research proposals and workshops with leading scientists from Canada and the US. To identify key data sets, gaps in our knowledge and to develop research proposals that will expand our understanding of factors which have contributed to reductions in marine survival observed in the Salish Sea during the last 20 years.
The program, which is slated to last 7 years is estimated to cost about $20 million. To date about $2 million has been raised. Visit the LLTK website to find out more about this program.
