California Fish In Serious Hot Water

May 23, 2017

There is no commercial salmon fishing season in the Pacific along much of the coast this year, because of the need to protect sensitive species from overfishing.

This is not the first time fishery managers shut down the take, and will not be the last.  And a recent report from California Trout and researchers at UC-Davis indicate fish are in serious trouble despite the efforts. 

"SOS II: Fish in Hot Water" predicts extinction for 74% of California's native salmon, steelhead, and trout in 100 years. 

California Trout's Curtis Knight and UC-Davis's Rob Lusardi are our guests.
