Salmon Peoples of Arctic Rivers

Assessing freshwater river systems based on traditional knowledge

Objective

Traditional Knowledge (TK) holders, scientists and resource agencies are designing an assessment of freshwater river systems based on TK. The design of this holistic assessment will focus on “Salmon peoples” as a measure of ecosystem health and outline future data needs that could contribute to the resilience and adaptation of these peoples and the salmon populations upon which they depend.
