How Climate Change Adds To Stress On Salmon

Aug 14, 2019

The salmon of our region are very adaptable; they've survived millions of years in both the ocean and freshwater streams.  But humans have presented some challenges to the fish, and climate change compounds the situation. 

A recent study looked at climate pressures on salmon and steelhead populations up and down the West Coast, and it gives some indication of which species will require more attention and assistance to survive. 

Lisa Crozier of the National Marine Fisheries Service is the lead author of the study and our guest.
