Alaska’s Fertile Crescent: Tongass Fish Factory

Trout Unlimited says the study highlights the need to change the way resource managers look at the Tongass National Forest and more fully realize its value as a fish factory.

“This study really drives home the point that the Tongass is a huge salmon factory. It’s one of the few places left in the world where these fish remain healthy and abundant, and if managed correctly, will continue to thrive for future generations,” said Trout Unlimited Alaska spokeswoman Paula Dobbyn.
