West coast dead salmon toss
The west coast salmon are not always making it to their spawning grounds. That has an impact on the salmon, but it also has an impact on the ecosystem that relies on the dead salmon after they have spawned. A group has formed to bring dead salmon and throw them in the river. It doesn't replace the spawning, but it provides for the rest of the ecosystem. Animals feast on the dead fish. The remains provide nutrients for the river and the plants that grow along the river.

It is actually a really good idea. It helps keep an ecosystem healthy in the absence of one of its key components.

I know they made a fun event of it and that is why people keep coming back. I just wish they would have treated the salmon differently. They should have been honored somehow for their contribution to the lives of other creatures.
