Tongass 77

My article this week came out of this months Pacific Fishing magazine. The article is titled “THE Tongass 77 campaign and why you should support it”. To sum up this article it states that a healthy salmon population comes from healthy fresh water streams. Currently in the Tongass Nation Forest there are only 12 designated areas with buffer zones to protect fish from logging. The Tongass 77 campaign is pushing for 77 designated areas to preserve and protect our salmon populations. Logging will still be allowed to continue , but 77 drainages will be protected from logging. This article really fits in great for this week I believe . To keep our fish sustainable we not only have to regulate our catch but preserve our forests.
