Due to efforts by The Boeing Company, a stretch of habitat in Puget Sound's Lower Duwamish Waterway is booming with baby salmon, called smolt. By restoring the shoreline habitat, the juvenile salmon have a place to play before they swim out to sea to become adults. Boeing, in collaboration with local partners along the Duwamish, continue to monitor the habitat is working as designed.

And it is. The first count of the season welcomed over 1,600 smolt to Seattle.
