ANCHORAGE - Trout Unlimited has enlisted nearly 50 restaurants in Seattle and Portland in its campaign against the proposed Pebble Mine.
KTUU reports the "Savor Bristol Bay" campaign encourages diners to choose Bristol Bay wild salmon. Trout Unlimited's Paula Dobbyn says by drawing attention to the salmon, it can make more people aware of the potential harm from the mine.
The Pebble Partnership says it's doing research now to put together a proposal that addresses environmental concerns. The company says Alaska has an excellent record of fisheries and mining coexisting.
