Coquille Tribe Takes Larger Role In Salmon Survival
People and salmon have a millennia-long history together, and the Coquille Tribe is determined for that relationship to continue.
The tribe recently agreed with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlifeto assist in helping salmon runs on the Oregon coast survive this dry summer. The efforts focus on the Coquille River and its tributaries, and include strategies like blocking hungry sea lions from devouring the fall Chinook salmon run.
