Sacramento is next on the list for Louis Masai and his “Art of Beeing” US Autumn 2016 tour. And something smells fishy.

“Lame Uncle” Joke, sorry. God, you kids are so critical! Go back to your phone! Wait, you are on your phone.

Anyway, the Coho Salmon is losing seriously. They’ve gone from 300,000 to 10,000 in the last 65 years, and the population trend is decreasing. You used to find them spawning in Southern Oregon and Northern California, but we’re going to kill them off soon if you just stand by and do nothing. One thing we can be sure of ; someone else is taking care of it.

So how’s the trip been, Mr. Masai?

“We drove through snowy mountains from Reno to Lake Tahoe, and then descended a continuous downwards road for 6000 feet – which took about an hour to get into Sacramento,” he says. “What an incredibly diverse landscape! It’s just mind-blowing.”

Hosted by a collector of his artwork, Louis says their relatives own a restaurant where he painted this image of the Coho Salmon. Do they have salmon on the menu?

“These guys were aware of the issues surrounding the salmon and a few years ago they made the decision not to serve salmon,” he says. “I salute a business that can take even the smallest changes to accommodate for the environment.”

Side question: Why is the “L” in salmon silent? Anyone?
