Dire Situation of Sacramento River Chinook Run Results In Probable Closures
by Dan Bacher
Two of three options for recreational and commercial salmon fishing seasons adopted by the Pacific Fishery Management Council (PFMC) today in Sacramento would result in complete closures for the first time in history. The collapse of Central Valley chinook salmon that has spurred the proposed closures is largely the result of abysmally poor management of the fishery by the state and federal governments. Fishermen, Indian Tribes and environmentalists believe that massive exports of water from the California Delta by the Bush and Schwarzenegger administrations are the main cause of the decline.
