The Salute to the Sockeye takes place on the dominant year of the four-year cycle. The Salute to the Sockeye is the largest Sockeye Salmon run in North America, and is a three week long event, running from September 28th until October 21st, 2018.

The Adams River Salmon Society is run by a volunteer board of directors who are elected by the membership at the Annual General Meeting. The primary focus of the Society is to help organize and run the Salute to the Sockeye held during the dominant run every four years.
The Society helps to determine how best to utilize the proceeds from the Salutes, including the event admission revenue, to fulfill its mandate to encourage and facilitate the education and conservation of the natural and cultural resources of Tsútswecw Provincial Park (Roderick Haig-Brown).
