Posted: February 6, 2019

Increasing water temperatures are already affecting businesses along the coast, specifically the Salmon Hatcheries in Washington state that Nexus Media News visited.

For the Tulalip Tribes, seeing this decline in salmon population is not just a loss of business but also losing a way of life.
