I chose to draw these endangered chinook salmon with the same air of royalty as a pair of graceful koi fish. This was to bring light to the bias and hierarchy of value we subconsciously place on various species. How precious and untouchable koi are in Japanese culture, meanwhile these salmon find their way to our plates. As rivers dry up and dams are built over them, salmon are having a hard time getting upstream to reproduce.
