Tualatin Salmon Toss


This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

The numbers of salmon returning to the upper Tualatin River have dwindled. One consequence is a lack of dead salmon to nourish the river and its banks. Boy Scout volunteers learn how tossing away a truckload of dead fishery salmon is actually good for the environment.

First Broadcast: 2002
Producer: Ed Jahn
