Yvon Chouinard and Dylan Tomine Speeches from the 2011 River Science Symposium

 /  Mar 23, 2012 2 Min Read  /  Activism

Yvon Chouinard speaks at the 2011 Elwha River Science Symposium about the value of selectively harvesting salmon by species, a technique Patagonia Provisions is employing for our upcoming Wild Salmon Jerky. The Symposium was held in conjunction with the historic Elwha River dam removal ceremony.

Patagonia fly fishing ambassador Dylan Tomine also spoke at the event about the importance of letting the Elwha heal naturally instead of restocking the river with nonnative hatchery-raised fish.

Following up on Dylan's talk: The Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe agreed in February to not plant Chambers Creek hatchery fish (a nonnative species) in the Elwha River this year. Four conservation groups filed suit against the Tribe and federal agencies to block the release. “We appreciate the Tribe’s flexibility on this matter,” said Rich Simms, president of the Wild Steelhead Coalition, “and we recognize their special relationship to the watershed. We want to work with them to both restore wild fish and meet their needs.” Read more at Wild Steelhead Coalition.
