Shoshone-Bannock Fish & Wildlife Perspectives on Salmon Studies

April 23, 2022 at 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

In celebration of Earth Day, Kurt Tardy and Rob Trahant will join us to discuss their salmon recovery work with the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes. They’ll share the history of the Tribes’ fishing practices along Idaho’s rivers and current tribal resource management and inter-agency coordination, including specific projects at Pettit Lake and on the Middle Fork of the Salmon. They’ll also look ahead to the future of sockeye and chinook, rivers and dam management, and climate change before inviting your questions.

Kurt Tardy, Fisheries Manager, is an anadromous fish biologist who has worked with the Shoshone-Bannock tribes in central Idaho for nearly a decade. Kurt’s focus is on fish restoration, with the long-term goal of restoring salmon and steelhead populations to their historic abundance and the short-term goal of saving them from impending extinction

Rob Trahant (Shoshone-Bannock) is a fisheries technician for the Tribes and lead technician on the Pettit Lake Weir facility. He has worked since 1995 on sockeye recovery efforts in the Sawtooth Basin.
