If We’re Serious About Helping Wild Salmon And Orcas Survive In Puget Sound, What’s The Solution?

Leading scientists and recent data indicate that the current plan—to feed starving Southern Resident killer whales with 60 million additional hatchery Chinook salmon per year—is misguided, expensive ($87 million), and likely, disastrous for the orcas, wild Chinook salmon and other aquatic life. And yet, the fact remains: The whales need more food and they need it now. The only real solution to providing more Chinook salmon for orcas in the short term, then, is to reduce harvest, particularly in West Coast open-ocean fisheries. This will require sacrifice by many of us, but if we’re serious about saving hungry orcas, we humans need to take less for ourselves.
