We explore the biology as well as the spirituality of this great fish, whose endangered ability to survive as a free and independent creature may well parallel our own, here in the Pacific Northwest. Without salmon, the ecosystem "unravels." What we do to the Salmon, we literally do to ourselves. Salmon expert, Scott Sebring of the Oregon Dept of Fish & Wildlife explains the intricate biology of this critical indicator species. Actor and master storyteller Peter Donaldson discusses the salmon-human connection. Acclaimed for his recent theatrical portrayal of Leonardo Da Vinci, Peter is well known in Pacific Northwest theater for his ongoing production, "Salmon People."
