Chinook salmon are unique. They are the largest, most preferred salmon among seafood lovers. They are important to indigenous peoples economically and culturally. But, unlike all other Pacific salmon species, Chinook are struggling. Will the favored solutions bring these iconic fish back, or merely cause more harm?

This paper is an overview and introduction to the range of science studies and reports presented in the Appendix. Cumulatively the studies point to the possibility of a great misdiagnosis. If there is a basic misunderstanding of the causes of Chinook decline, then the costly solutions will end in disappointment.
