The Salish Sea

Posted on November 28, 2017

Although we live in the Puget Sound area, many of us donít realize the ecosystem (of which the Puget Sound is only a part) includes what we have long considered individual waterways, some that extend into Canada. In recognition of that fact, the name Salish Sea is now beginning to be used to include all of Puget Sound and as far north as you could go through the Strait of Georgia to the Gulf Islands and Desolation Sound in British Columbia and westward through the Strait of Juan De Fuca.

Local public radio station KNKX, 88.5 FM produced a series about the Salish Sea that included the background of how the name came to be broadly used and the issues facing the ecosystem. The link below takes you to a web site that includes highlights from the series.
