If the Kenai Peninsula Borough is to avoid the salmon mistakes of the Pacific Northwest, everyone needs to do their part. The banks of our rivers and lakes are critically important to fish. Where the water meets the land is where juvenile salmon spend the majority of their time in freshwater; millions of them are there now feeding, hiding from predators and living in the clean water we are fortunate to have. Without these basic elements our fish will not do well and future generations will not have the experiences we have now.
