2023 Salish Sea Marine Survival Project Transboundary Workshop
On May 16 and 17, 2023, thirty-seven U.S. and Canadian members of the scientific and salmon recovery community convened in Bellingham, Washington, for the first in-person transboundary gathering of the SSMSP in three years. The objectives of the meeting were to:
- Identify how the science and findings from the Salish Sea Marine Survival Project (SSMSP) are being advanced and implemented within Washington State and British Columbia,
- Identify remaining gaps and opportunities for research, action, and transboundary collaboration, and
- Discuss how the strong SSMSP transboundary network plans to engage and collaborate in the future.
This was envisioned to be the first of many workshops that LLTK and PSF plan to host to maintain the SSMSP network and advance transboundary collaboration toward implementing SSMSP findings and recommendations. Funding for this workshop was provided by the Puget Sound Partnership (PSP), with contributions from PSF and LLTK.
