About : Salmon-Safe

Welcome to Salmon-Safe. More than a decade after first certifying farms in Oregon's Willamette Valley, Salmon-Safe has become one of the nation's leading regional eco labels with more than 95,000 acres of farm and urban lands certified in Oregon, Washington, California, and British Columbia. The Salmon-Safe retail campaign has been featured in 300 supermarkets and natural food stores, delivering important marketplace benefits to participating landowners.

Founded by Pacific Rivers Council, Salmon-Safe is now an independent 501(c)3 nonprofit based in Portland Oregon. Our mission is to transform land management practices so Pacific salmon can thrive in West Coast watersheds.

Salmon-Safe works across the West Coast through our Partner Network. Established at our Salmon-Safe Summit in 2007, the Partner Network consists of place-based conservation organizations as well as collaborating certification organizations.  Founding organizations Stewardship Partners, Oregon Tilth, and LIVE have been joined by Pacific Salmon Foundation, Fraser Basin Council, DemeterVinea and Trout Unlimited. Salmon-Safe seeks to extend the range of the Network in key agricultural and urban watersheds throughout the West Coast range of Pacific salmon.
