No More Salmon

Some folks declare the environment is getting better, but then they aren't fish biologists. I am. Chinook Salmon Vanish Without a Trace. In a time of dwindling fresh water in a warming world, this is a symptom. Hatchery salmon don't have the survival skills of wild runs. Like cattle, they can wander off and die easily. One thing is certain: they need water to get back to their source.

It's insights like this that cause me to respect your experience as a fish biologist.

Lack of water is a problem for a fish. When you have conservative government subsidized potato farmers (how's that hypocrisy?)taking the water, the fish die. There may be lynchings. Ever meet angry commerical fishermen? Tough bunch.
