Salmon are the lifeblood of coastal ecosystems and economies — a keystone species that is integral to the entire coastal food chain and at the heart of coastal First Nations’ culture and creation stories. It is our responsibility to help restore salmon populations.

CFN member Nations will continue to spread awareness of the salmon crisis and advance the positive solutions that will bring populations back to healthy levels.
