2019 Salmon Recovery Conference

Salmon Recovery Conference logo


The Salmon Recovery Funding Board’s (SRFB) biennial Salmon Recovery Conference is a highly regarded and important event for sharing information and improving salmon recovery in Washington State.

The conference brings together people involved with salmon recovery from Washington State and the region for information sharing and networking about the 4 H’s of salmon recovery: habitat, hydropower, hatcheries, and harvest. The conference is an opportunity to share best practices, improve recovery plan implementation and review, and learn how others are adapting project designs given new or emerging data and information. Initially, the conference was utilized as a place to discuss on-the-ground salmon recovery projects and how to implement them better.

Since 2007, the conference has evolved from examining lessons learned to achieving a broader goal of messaging and problem solving about salmon recovery. The conference continues to evolve with each biennial session, and now also includes recent research and policy discussions about salmon recovery and how salmon recovery benefits human society.
