AR-Cover-OnlyWe recently designed the Regional Fisheries Coalition’s 2015 Annual Report. The Report is an 80 page, saddle-stitched booklet, printed on satin coated 70# stock. It includes a six-panel glossy centerfold stitched into the middle of the report, which can be easily removed as a standalone collateral piece.

The Report tells the stories and accomplishments of Washington’s 14 Regional Fisheries Enhancement Groups (RFEGs), which are all united under the umbrella of the Regional Fisheries Coalition. These are our state’s watershed level, community based, salmon recovery groups, which endeavor to restore valuable habitat to support salmon and steelhead populations for future generations.
