The Problem

The Solution

Restoring some semblance of more natural river conditions, with adequate cold water flows, and bank, side channel and floodplain habitat is needed to restore salmon.  Maximizing hatchery production is needed to keep the industry viable.

Golden State Salmon Rebuilding Plan

GSSA has developed a science based plan that prioritizes restoration of fall run salmon through a series of hatchery, habitat and water flow improvements.  Scientists have proven that leaving more water in the rivers is the single best thing to do to help salmon.
