The fish in the Columbia River and its tributaries are of paramount importance to our people, our diet, and our health.

Through our treaty-reserved rights, we advocate for the resources that cannot speak for themselves, and we provide outreach and education activities that empower others to do the same.

Our biologists and technicians are out in the field every day, actively restoring the river in accordance with our traditions and rigorous science.
