Extractions: To Go Directly to the Table of Contents The recovery of salmon and steelhead in the Pacific Northwest has cost billions of dollars that have been paid for by taxpayers and electric ratepayers. Salmon recovery programs are controversial because they have affected the lives of many people by affecting fisheries, farming, the price of electricity, cattle ranching, property rights, forestry and mining practices, and shipping. Most of the attention in salmon recovery has been about the 4H's (Hydropower, Habitat, Hatcheries, and Harvest). This web site links viewpoints about salmon and steelhead recovery in the Columbia Basin and along the Oregon Coast. In salmon recovery issues, there often appears to be too much polarization, blaming of others, and listening only to those who support one's own viewpoint. It is healthy to listen to and to be aware of differing perspectives because the future of salmon recovery may depend upon opposing groups understanding each other and working together.
