About Us

The Native Fish Society exists to cultivate a groundswell of public support needed to revive abundant wild, native fish.

Mission & Guiding Values

Our Mission

Guided by the best available science, Native Fish Society advocates for the recovery of wild, native fish and promotes the stewardship of the habitats that sustain us all.

Our Vision

We envision a Pacific Northwest abundant in wild fish, free-flowing rivers, and thriving local communities.

Our Values

Wild, native fish are a keystone species. They are uniquely entwined in a natural relationship with people and wildlife. Their wellbeing and success affects us all.

Wild is our common ground. Anglers, conservationists, naturalists, outdoor enthusiasts, foodies & foragers, educators, scientists, policymakers, and traditionally underrepresented communities all have an important role to play in the future of wild fish.

We are keepers of the wild. Native Fish Society empowers everyday people to take action on behalf of fish, their homewaters, and local communities. We forge lasting relationships to educate, inspire, and mobilize everyone committed to keeping fish and their homewaters forever wild.

Our motivations are urgent but our views are long. Science-based knowledge and cultural wisdom inform our strategies to ensure the complex lifecycle of wild fish continues for generations to come.

Our passion for wild fish runs deep. Our mission is more than an environmental movement, it's about preserving our shared cultures.
