Add comment on:Massive Loss of Endangered Winter Run Chinook Salmon
The California Sportfishing Protection Alliance (CSPA) has exposed the massive loss of endangered Sacramento River winter run Chinook salmon in irrigation ditches this year. As many as half of the endangered fish may have died, according to agency scientists. The survivors face being hammered by the mismanagement of cold water releases from Shasta Dam. The late Hal Bonslett and I spent many hours going to meetings and writing articles in the late 1980s advocating for the listing of the winter run Chinook under the Endangered Species Act. Now here we are are over two decades later watching the state and federal agencies imperiling the once huge run of winter run Chinook again!
