Year of the Salmon

On October 30, NOAA Fisheries Greater Atlantic Region launched the International Year of the Salmon on the East Coast at the New England Aquarium. This initiative aspires to bring attention to the conditions necessary to ensure the resilience of salmon and people throughout the Northern Hemisphere. The Honorable Madonna Soctomah of the Passamaquoddy Tribe and I shared stories of the cultural history of wild Atlantic salmon. We also talked with Living Lab Radio about the history and relevance of this endangered species.
