We often hear about projects that will harm salmon such as the recently proposed gold and copper mine in Alaska, but why does it matter? As it turns out, salmon isn’t just a tasty meal, but a multi-billion dollar economic engine, a centerpiece of Native American and Alaskan culture, and a species that rivers, streams, and nearby ecosystems can’t survive without.

With special guest Dr. Syma Ebbin: Professor of Agricultural and Resource Economics and the Connecticut Sea Grant Research Coordinator at the University of Connecticut.
