Members of Klamath Basin Tribes want to show their support for Salmon Aid by hosting a traditional salmon bake on the eve of the event. Although Klamath salmon runs are dwindling, tribal fishermen still harvest salmon for ceremonial and commercial use. By joining forces with commercial fishermen, conservation groups, and others concerned about native salmon stocks, Tribal members hope to build support for the removal of the lower four Klamath River dams.
Since ocean salmon fishing is banned this year and the Klamath is the only river where salmon fishing will be allowed, this may be the only chance many will get to taste fresh wild salmon this year.
Salmon Aid will be held at Jack London Square in Oakland, Ca May 31 – June 1.
