Yes - and all the myriad other huge benefits that salmon and the other life on rivers have. The forest in the headlands of the massive watershed systems are suffering mightily with the lack of salmon - when they return to where they were spawned, to breed the next generation and then die - their very bodies are a massive source of nutrition for animals, and this is what has contributed more than we ever thought to the soil and plant life all over those headlands. Good soil leads to healthy rivers, and we have totally disrupted this cycle, with our massive dams.
