Abstract

The Salmon Guide is an exciting new resource for teaching and learning about salmon in the Salish Sea and Pacific Northwest. Created by the Clean Water Kitsap program of Kitsap County, Washington and funded through the Washington State Department of Ecology, the Salmon Guide provides written and illustrative content on the following topics:

  • Salmon in the Pacific Northwest
  • Living in Rivers, Streams, and Marine Waters
  • Salmon Biology
  • Stream Ecology
  • Survival in Today's World
  • Sharing Salmon Knowledge
  • Glossary

Beautifully designed with colorful graphics, the Salmon Guide is the first teaching tool of this type designed to be carried into the field with helpful information for docents, teachers and educators, agency staff, students, workshop participants, and others. The Salmon Guide recognizes the role of Pacific salmon as a signature species of the Salish Sea and Pacific Northwest that has culturally and nutritionally sustained people of this region since time immemorial. The introductory page of the guide states, “Essential to our natural environment, salmon bring nutrients from the ocean to nourish plants and animals on land. Critical to our economy, salmon support recreation, tourism, and tribal and commercial fisheries. As titans of the Pacific Northwest, salmon strengthen our environmental and economic health and improve our quality of life.”
