| 58,000,000 sockeye salmon returned to Bristol Bay, Alaska this year. It was one of the biggest returns in decades, supporting jobs for thousands of Alaska Natives, commercial, and sport fishermen.

Today is the last day of the EPA’s public comment period, and you can find an easy link to voice your concern on my profile @arni_coraldo.
