How will Salmon Policy change under the Obama Administration?

For eight years the Bush administration did everything in their power to impede real salmon recovery along the Columbia River. Now it is the Obama administration's turn to take a serious look at restoring adequate salmon runs to our region. It started this week with high-level Obama administration officials, including NOAA Administrator Dr. Jane Lubchenco, meeting in Portland with representatives from Northwest states and Tribes. However, fishermen and salmon advocates were blocked from the meeting.

While the official invitees met inside the hotel, fishermen circled the Lloyd Center Doubletree trailing fishing boats, kayaks and drift boats to stake their claim in the Columbia-Snake salmon plan debate.
