Critical seed funding arrives to initiate work


LLTK and PSF received $5 million dollars from the Southern Endowment Fund of the US-Canada Pacific Salmon Treaty to initiate the research! Pacific Salmon Treaty Commissioner and Fund Committee member, Larry Rutter, announced the award at LLTK’s October 2013 Benefit Dinner.

That summer, the Washington State legislature also allocated $800,000 toward marine survival research specific to Puget Sound steelhead.
