About the Project

The Puget Sound supports all five species of Pacific salmon: chinook, chum, coho, pink and sockeye. All types of salmon are born in rivers across the Puget Sound, travel out to the marine waters (some go as far away as Alaska or Russia) and then return to breed in their original river system. To do this, all salmon need healthy rivers and marine waters, rest areas along their journey like deep pools and side channels, and food like insects and smaller fish to keep their strength.

The work reflected in this site all come from important actions identified in the Puget Sound Salmon Recovery Plan (see: www.psp.wa.gov/SR_map.php) and can be seen because of the hard work of tribal government, state and federal agencies, city and county governments, non-profits, and dedicated members of the public.
