Salmon season will be here before we know it! Join your fellow fishermen and women to toast the eve of the salmon season on Friday, April 3, 2020. The GSSA Santa Rosa dinner is our biggest opportunity to raise money to continue our work on California salmon runs and the watersheds they rely on. You don’t want to miss the 10th Anniversary party!

If you would like to be part of the cause and help by donating fishing trips, goods and gear, or adventures to be auctioned off at the dinner, please contact GSSA at 855.251.4472 or Cat@goldenstatesalmon.org. See you there!

The Golden Gate Salmon Association is a coalition of salmon advocates that includes commercial and recreational salmon fisherman, businesses, restaurants, a native tribe, environmentalists, elected officials, families and communities that rely on salmon. 

GGSA’s mission is to restore California salmon for their economic, recreational, commercial, environmental, cultural and health values.

Currently, California’s salmon industry is valued at $1.4 billion in economic activity annually in a regular season and about half that much in economic activity and jobs again in Oregon. The industry employs tens of thousands of people from Santa Barbara to northern Oregon. This is a huge economic bloc made up of commercial fishermen, recreational fishermen (fresh and salt water), fish processors, marinas, coastal communities, equipment manufacturers, the hotel and food industry, tribes, and the salmon fishing industry at large.
