Salmon diplomacy

See also

Salmon diplomacy refers to the practice of using salmon fisheries and related conservation efforts as a tool for diplomacy between nations or groups of people. This can include cooperative efforts to manage shared salmon populations, negotiations over fishing rights and quotas, and the development of international agreements to protect salmon habitats and migration routes.

Salmon diplomacy has been used in a number of contexts, including between the USA and Canada, where the two countries have cooperated on salmon management in the Pacific Northwest, and between Russia and Japan, where the two countries have negotiated over fishing rights in the North Pacific. The practice can be seen as a way of promoting cooperation and peace between nations, as well as a means of protecting important natural resources for future generations.
