Our Mission:

“Protect and restore salmon populations and aquatic habitat with an emphasis on ecosystem function through scientifically informed projects, community education, and volunteer involvement.”



The South Puget Sound Salmon Enhancement Group (SPSSEG) is a local voice for regional salmon recovery.  From the highest peak in the Cascades, to the fertile shorelines and estuaries of Puget Sound, we restore salmon habitat with willing landowners. We seek out and partner with other organizations to help plan, fund, carry out, and monitor fishery enhancement and habitat restoration projects.  We believe that by collaborating with local communities, schools, and individuals in King, Pierce, Kitsap, Thurston and Mason Counties, we can increase salmon numbers in our rivers and streams.  Our non-profit non-governmental status helps us to get real results.

We envision:

  1. Robust and persistent salmonid populations supported by South Puget Sound region ecosystems.
  2. A leadership role in South Puget Sound freshwater and marine conservation and restoration.
  3. Broad-based community support and involvement in accomplishing our mission.
  4. A long-term and sustainable organization.



Base funding for the RFEG program comes from a grant from the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service’s Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program, a portion of state commercial and recreational fishing license fees, and excess egg and carcass sales administered by the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife.
