What’s killing the salmon? Long Live the Kings investigates decline in iconic fish – KCPQ


Good overview of what Long Live The Kings and Microsoft are doing to help us understand root causes of the decline of the salmon.

Salmon are a big part of life in the Pacific Northwest. But over the past couple of decades, they’ve declined to critical levels and researchers don’t know why. Solving the mystery is what nonprofit Long Live the Kings is working on, and thanks to a grant from Microsoft, technology is helping the nonprofit develop a comprehensive model to find clues to solve it. Long Live the Kings is looking into Puget Sound and the waterways the flow into it, more broadly known as the Salish Sea. This Salish Sea Marine Survival Project is tracking migration of fish through our marine environment to understand what’s affecting salmons’ mortality.  Simply, why do salmon keep dying?

  1. While this is encouraging, I hope the projects have a predictable set of benchmarks and public study results. There is almost no information on project scope, funds or schedules. This feel-good promo piece has its place, how can we access some study specifics and reporting dates?
