We’re asking all Citizens and Beneficiaries not to harvest Chinook Salmon in the Yukon River or its tributaries.
Preserving our salmon population means all salmon must reach their spawning grounds. Now more than ever, it’s vital for all Yukon First Nations to prioritize salmon passage.
We must save the salmon and be stewards of the land, air, and water. We need to put salmon first! Our future generations and most importantly, our salmon, need us to give them a safe passage home.
As of August 10, 12,878 Yukon River Chinook salmon have crossed into Canada. This is well below the goal of 55,000.
Shä̀w níthän, gunalcheésh, másin cho, and thank you for your cooperation.
