The work of Long Live The Kings puts fish in rivers and leads to changes in management that protect and restore wild salmon

This is an open letter to anyone who cares about wild salmon. There used to be millions of wild salmon in the waters of the Pacific Northwest. Now, there’s only a fraction of that. Where have all the salmon gone? That’s the question I, Duke Moscrip, owner of Duke’s Chowder House, have been asking recently.

Whatever the reason for the dwindling salmon population, we at Duke’s want to support Long Live The Kings to restore the wild salmon population. Long Live The Kings is a nonprofit organization committed to restoring wild salmon and steelhead and supporting sustainable fishing in the Pacific Northwest. For 30 years, Long Live The Kings has been helping those who make decisions about salmon to be successful by providing coordinated, scientifically credible and transparent solutions.

The work of Long Live The Kings puts fish in rivers and leads to changes in management that protect and restore wild salmon — the backbone of our Northwest ecosystems, including our orca whales — and is the foundation of a sustainable fishery.

Duke’s Chowder House has established a sterling reputation for serving only sustainable seafood. We recently received the highest rating in the world for sustainability by Fish2Fork, and a 100 percent sustainable seafood volume compliance rating from Smart Catch.

Sustainability is personal to me. I want to do everything I can to make sure that there is plenty of wild salmon for our grandchildren and our grandchildren’s grandchildren. Help me by helping Long Live The Kings. Together we can move mountains and restore our wild salmon back to our waters.
