Salmon Apocalypse Looming in California
California Water Impact Network (C-WIN)
Low flows could prove the death-knell for the winter-run Chinook, said Bill Jennings, executive director of the California Sportfishing Protection Alliance. “We’re only in a second dry year, not even a declared drought, and the system is fundamentally broken,” said Jennings. “The State Water Board has assured the Department of Water Resources and U.S. Bureau of Reclamation that it won’t enforce Delta water quality and flow standards. The temperature compliance point on the Sacramento has been moved upstream, eliminating crucial spawning habitat for endangered Winter-run Chinook salmon.” When salmon return from the ocean this fall to spawn in Central Valley rivers, there may not be enough cold water for them to successfully spawn.
