  1. Well, thank goodness for effective arguments presented by various environmenal groups! Salmonid populations are tanking big time. Similiar to ofher land locked fish species that are now listed under “Heritage” species….like the Goose Lake redband trout. The viability of these popularions under the current climate fluctuations depends upon our ability to provide them the necessary habitat for successful breeding. Sustainability is a tricky objective. Genetic variability among these salmon species has thinned a bit since the late 1800’s. Let’s hope we can assist them in some way that can prove their resiliency under such changing temperature and hydrologic factors….
