We Bring Back The Fish (video)
THE FISH CAME BACK THE VERY NEXT DAY
Harvesting the largest catch of salmon in Alaska history 2013
The fish came back we thought they were a goner.
OK so the fish really came back this fall, a year following our 2012 ocean pasture restoration in the NE Pacific. The wonderful heartening news is they came back in tremendous numbers, more than in all of recorded history in many regions such as SE Alaska nearest to our ocean restoration project location.
Now it is being reported that everywhere from Alaska to the lower 48, baby salmon that swam out to sea, instead of mostly starving were treated to a feast on newly vibrant ocean pastures where once they could neither thrive nor survive.
They grew and grew and before too long they swam back to our rivers with more than half a billion additional fish.
