Anadromous Waters

Protecting the Tongass Steelhead

From our friends at Trout Unlimited: “At nearly 17 million acres, the Tongass National Forest in Southeast Alaska is the country’s largest national forest. The Tongass includes more than 15,700 miles of clean, undammed streams and 4,100 lakes and ponds that provide optimal spawning and rearing conditions for the region’s abundant wild steelhead and salmon. Steelhead are “officially” found in over 300 Tongass streams, according to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) Anadromous Waters Catalog (AWC), a database of the extant institutional observations concerning anadromous fish populations in Alaska. Learn more about what Trout Unlimited is doing to help protect those populations by watching our latest film Anadromous Waters.”
