It surprised nearly no one when the federal Marine Fisheries service announced (on Feb. 27) a 12-month review to consider listing Klamath River Spring Chinook Salmon for endangered species protection. 

Several salmonid species are struggling, as demonstrated in the report by Cal Trout called "Fish in Hot Water" released last year. 

Peter Moyle from Cal Trout recently spoke to the state water board for the North Coast about fish issues.  Craig Tucker is Natural Resources Policy Advocate for the Karuk Tribe. They visit here with recent findings that underscore last year's report.
