Ocean to Idaho:
Tight Line Media
Ocean to Idaho is a multi-media experience that addresses the decline of endangered salmon throughout public land and water in the Pacific Northwest. The project follows Chinook salmon migration 850 miles from Oregon’s coast to Idaho’s wilderness. This is the route.
Cool Green Science
Migrate 850 miles. Spawn. Die. Millions of salmon do it. Well, at least they used to. Now only a few dozen make it from Oregon’s coast to Idaho’s wilderness. To make up for the loss of fish and the nutrients that come inland with ocean raised swimmers, scientists are planting dead fin in streams.
East Idaho Outdoors
