The goal of the Future of Our Salmon conferences is to facilitate dialogue between co-managers of the resource and a broad range of other interested parties in an ongoing quest for a unified vision of fish restoration in the Columbia River Basin. Each conference approaches this goal with a different theme. The 2016 Future of Our Salmon conference theme is “Healthy Floodplains, Living Rivers.” It will focus on the vital role of floods and floodplains to healthy rivers and develop a unified strategy to address climate change impacts for the benefit of the region’s fish, wildlife, and communities.
The conference is for federal, tribal, First Nation, state, provincial, and local government representatives; Indian, sport, and commercial fishers; environmental organizations; and anyone else interested in maintaining and restoring ecosystems for sustainable populations of anadromous and resident fish throughout the Columbia River Basin and its tributaries.
