Looking to buy fresh Golden State Salmon this season and support your local fishermen and women? GSSA is working to help protect the 23,000 plus jobs in the salmon industry. One of the ways is with this list of local California retailers, fresh off the boat sales, farmers’ markets, and home delivery services where you can buy Golden State Salmon.
All the major salmon rivers in California are now dammed, cutting off access to habitat and the natural flows salmon need to survive. River banks, side channels, and floodplains, all needed to rear salmon, have been badly altered.
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.
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.
