Bringing the Salmon Home: The Columbia River Salmon Reintroduction Initiative is collaboratively led by the Syilx Okanagan, Secwépemc, and Ktunaxa Nations (ColumbiaRiverSalmon.ca). Dams have blocked salmon from returning into the upper Columbia for over 85 years. The Columbia was once the greatest salmon-producing river in the world. Almost 40-percent of the mainstem Columbia River originates in Canada.
