Taku River First Nations
The DIA is currently working with Taku River Tlingit First Nations (TRTFN) to address salmon resiliency in the Taku Inlet. There has been a low count of salmon, mainly King & Sockeye salmon within the past 5 years in the Taku Inlet. DIA and TRTFN are partnering together to address this issue and to find out what is causing the low returns of salmon.
The DIA will Work with TRTFN on identifying the major causes of low salmon returns to the Taku and protecting the Taku watershed. Work with TRTFN, Tribes and proper agencies to help address the issues of low salmon runs in the Taku. DIA will address the causes of the low salmon returns within the Taku and develop outreach and education for Tribal members, and general public regarding the major causes of low salmon returns to the Taku. DIA will work with TRTFN to coordinate public workshops on salmon resiliency within the Taku area. DIA and TRTFN will also seek funding to help address salmon resiliency for planning and workshops.
