Struggle to get upstream to find a good place to spawn…
Three short (4 minute) videos take the viewer on a tour of streams in Kitsap County…streams that are mainly invisible: underground or hidden by trees. Even more importantly, we see interactions between the streams, the ecosystem, and the communities they flow through.
Art and science work together to produce an animated look at salmon in different nearshore habitats.
What do these have in common: Monitoring creosote at the bottom of Eagle Harbor in Puget Sound, surveying an Oregon Coast dredged material disposal site, characterizing a seafood outfall from a salmon processor in Ketchikan, Alaska?
Salmon passage has been in the media quite a bit lately. One of the programs that already exists to address this problem is the Washington State Family Forest Fish Passage Program.
The Nisqually Delta Restoration Project web site offers access to a wide variety of information, including news, photos, video, and science reports about this project. The videos are definitely worth checking out.
This speaks of the full circle of life and how we are all connected. The bear feeds on the salmon and as it travels it contributes to the growth and well being of all that grow on our mountains.
