All about salmon science, read our new Salmon Steward
When it comes to Pacific salmon conservation, there are certainly many mysteries about the range of factors that affect Pacific salmon abundance. To help provide clarity, the Pacific Salmon Foundation’s board of directors approved a strategic plan for 2013-2015 that includes a new goal to expand our scope of work in salmon science and research.
The magazine includes vignettes about grassroots ‘citizen science’ (p. 10/11) funded through our Community Salmon Program, our new Salish Sea Marine Survival Project (p. 14 - 19), and the Salmon Health Initiative we started last year to help us better understand the causes of salmon disease (p.8/9) - a project that should be of particular note to anyone who is interested in salmon aquaculture.
As always, we are grateful to all of the individuals, businesses, foundations, non-profits and governmental entities that make our work possible. The annual magazine is one of the most important ways we have of saying thank you and to recognize our supporters and partners.
We hope you will find our new magazine a valuable resource for understanding our work.
