About the Associaton: The Salmon Restoration Association exists for one reason: To take positive, measurable action to restore the natural wild salmon runs to rivers of Northern California. The association is a non-profit organization, and our primary funding come from two sources: The California Department of Fish and Game reserves a portion of the sales of commercial salmon tags for restoration work, and our annual event; The Worlds Largest Salmon Barbeque. Now a part of California’s history. Representative Mike Thompson of the 3rd district, has filed The Salmon Restoration Association’s “Worlds Largest Salmon Barbeque” as a Local Legacy project with the Library of Congress.
