Add comment on:Delta fish populations plunge in summer 2013
"The historical pattern and practice of violating regulatory requirements established to protect fisheries is outrageous," said Bill Jennings, Executive Director of the California Sportfishing Protection Alliance (CSPA), "but the consistent failure by regulators and trustee agencies to enforce the law is simply incomprehensible and indicates a collaborative culture of noncompliance." "The FBI would be investigating and the Justice Department prosecuting if a financial trust had ignored regulations over three decades and reduced trust assets by 99%," he emphasized. "I can understand water agencies attempting to take water that doesn't belong to them but I can't understand the cops giving them the green light."
