The Salish Sea Marine Survival Project (SSMSP) was designed as a 5-year, $20 million, ecosystem-based, interdisciplinary and transboundary study involving government, universities, private consultants, local communities, and not-for-profit groups to address one key question: What are primary factors affecting juvenile Chinook, coho & steelhead survival in the Salish Sea marine environment? The Project is coordinated by nonprofits, Vancouver-based Pacific Salmon Foundation (PSF) and Seattle-based Long Live the Kings (LLTK).
PSF launched the program in 2014, and since that time researchers have been studying young salmon and steelhead growth, health, and diet in the Salish Sea; tracking fish and marine mammal movements; monitoring marine conditions; and developing innovative technologies to answer critical questions facing salmon recovery and sustainable fisheries. We are now in our final year, and ready to report out on findings to date to communities around the Strait of Georgia!
