The Story of Salmon — the third installment in this thoughtful set of Slow Fish conversations. The story of salmon is one of perseverance, strength, unwavering instinct, and sheer will. Hear the story of salmon from the perspectives of those who depend on them for their lives.⁠ Here are the voices you’ll hear from, whether by story, poetry, or song —⁠ ⁠

  • Sally Barnes of Woodcock Smokery in West Cork, Ireland⁠
  • Skyeler Folks of Okanagan Nations Alliance⁠
  • Jon Broderick, a set netter out of Bristol Bay, Alaska⁠
  • Katherine Carscallen, drift netter out of Bristol Bay, Alaska⁠
  • Mark Titus, “The Wild” film director⁠
  • Marsh Skeele, co-founder/Vice-President of Sitka Salmon Shares and a second-generation fisherman⁠
  • Congressman Jared Huffman (via video recorded message)⁠
  • Melanie Brown, Bristol Bay set netter⁠ ⁠

This conversation, along with the spirit of the salmon’s perseverance and strength, is very relevant as we head toward the heart of the Pacific salmon season, the Pebble Mine permit process steamrolls ahead.⁠ ⁠ #slowfood #slowfish #slowfoodusa #salmon #salmonnation #columbiariver
