Who needs LiveAid or FarmAid? Oakland is hosting SalmonAid instead, down at Jack London Square. The festival takes place this Saturday and Sunday, from 12 noon – 7pm.
Music’s the main thing, with 20 bands scheduled on two stages. Of course, there’s food and drink too. Wild salmon is on the menu but it’s legally imported from Alaska.
SalmonAid is organized by West Coast salmon fishermen and conservation groups, working together to reverse major depletions in salmon stocks. From the news, you’re probably aware of the Chinook declines up the Sacramento River.
Yes, save the fish.
