Our region is famous for salmon and other fish that return from the ocean and swim past major obstacles to return to spawning grounds in fresh water.

But we've put a lot of obstacles in their way over the years, in the form of dams and other human-built structures. The California Fish Passage Forum brings together public and private groups and agencies working to remove barriers to fish passage.

We get a quick lesson in the projects and progress of the Forum in an interview with Chair Bob Pagliuco and Coordinator Alicia Marrs.
