Salmon have proven time and again to be good indicators of overall ecosystem health.  And according to coho salmon, we have ecosystem issues in the region. 

Four coho runs on the West Coast are listed as either endangered or threatened, and people of many organizations and skillsets are working to bring them back. 

Many of those people gather in the lower Klamath River country this week for the annual Coho Confab.  Dana Stoltzman of the Salmonid Restoration Federation and Will Harling of the Mid-Klamath Watershed Council talk to us about current topics of concern.
