Salmon Mean Business

normRecreational Fishing Industry calls on President Obama for a solution to Columbia Basin salmon crisis.

In early August of 2009, over 90 business leaders representing thousands of employees throughout the country, sent a letter to President Obama asking for his leadership to convene a stakeholders table to look at all scientifically credible and economically viable options for recovering wild salmon and steelhead and enhancing the communities and industries they serve.

“We’re talking about much more than a fish here. Salmon equal family-wage jobs, a healthy food source and an integral part of our Pacific Coast way of life,” said Dick Pool Owner and President of Pro-Troll Fishing Products in Concord, California. “In June, the Obama administration made a bold move to protect our California wild salmon with a science-based and lawful plan. Now it’s time they brought this same change to the Columbia-Snake rivers in the Pacific Northwest."

Take a look at the businesses below.
