There are moments in time when certain events change the course of history: the end of slavery, women’s right to vote, and putting a man on the moon come to mind. We are standing right now in one of those moments. What’s our moonshot? I’m going to call it our salmonshot. Let this be the moment that we achieve the greatest salmon recovery in the Pacific Northwest. Let this be the moment that we rebuild our relationships with these iconic fish. Let this be the moment that our kids and grandkids can look to and say, “Thank you for bringing the salmon back for us.” Our window of opportunity is now. We can do this. This is our moment. This is our salmonshot.
