Lend a fin to kokanee at local fundraiser

March 6, 2012

Coho Café Catering and Friends of the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery plan to help a salmon species in decline.

The organizations planned Kokanee S.O.S. — for “save our salmon” — a fundraiser at the Issaquah restaurant to raise dollars for Lake Sammamish kokanee salmon preservation. The species is dwindling, but the federal government declined last year to list the fish as endangered.

The fundraiser is scheduled for 6 p.m. March 23. Purchase tickets at Coho Café, 6130 E. Lake Sammamish Parkway S.E., Suite A, or by calling 391-4040.

Proceeds from the fundraiser benefit a long-term effort to restore the salmon species. The effort brings together U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, the King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks, the state Department of Fish and Wildlife, and FISH to collect and spawn kokanee.
