Join the next Salish Sea Science Roundtable on December 5th from 12:30 – 1:30 pm (PT) for an Update on the Salish Sea Marine Survival Project.
The Salish Sea Marine Survival Project was a seven-year collaborative, international research effort focused on identifying factors affecting early marine survival of Chinook and coho salmon and steelhead in the Salish Sea. The evidence from more than 90 individual studies identified that changes in food supply and an increase in predators are the primary factors driving the decline. Habitat loss, contaminants, disease, and hatchery practices exacerbate the impacts, all of which are further compounded by climate change.
Liz Duffy of Long Live the Kings and Isobel Pearsall of Pacific Salmon Foundation will share:
- A summary of key findings and recommendations that came out of the Salish Sea Marine Survival Projects
- Highlights of related science and actions that are currently being pursued in Washington and British Columbia
- Outcomes from the first in-person transboundary gathering of the project researchers in three years
- Next steps for continued transboundary collaboration
