California officials warned this week that salmon in the state’s Sacramento River may not survive the region’s historic drought.

The California Committee on Fish and Wildlife, the Sacramento Bee, writes that “almost all” of the juveniles in the endangered Chinook salmon may not miss the season.

The publication reported on Wednesday The final blow after two years of “severe death during the last drought” threatens the extinction of these species – although the agency has delivered millions of Chinook salmon to the waters of the Bay Area as a precautionary measure. although.

The three-room temperature tormented the West, killing hundreds of people in the last big heat wave. Severe conditions exacerbated the climate-dependent “megadrought,” which led to water shortages and reduced runoff.

“We were talking [drought response] he hoped the weather would improve in January, but if not, he will develop a game plan, ”Brett Galyan said., Coleman and Livingston Stone are project managers for the National Fish Production Project, according to the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Service in the Southwest USA. news at the beginning of the month. “We were able to produce about 11.8 million Chinook salmon that will run in the fall until the rivers deteriorate because we planned ahead and used the tools in our toolbox.”

California Dertment of Fish and Wildlife using special trucks moved to another location Chinook salmon, which ran nearly 17 million in the fall earlier this year, due to dry conditions.

Residents near the Lower Klamath River in California have witnessed firsthand the change in their ecosystems.

In the main part of the Klamath basin, where water-scarce algae threaten the sucking endangered sucker a month earlier than usual, water is scarce and juvenile salmon are found every day.

In addition, additional watercourses from Lake Upper Klamat, which are mitigating the spread of rickets, which increases when the river is low, are not coming this year, and rickets are killing thousands of juvenile fish.

Thousands of fish were unloaded from the plane to restore the high-altitude lakes in Utah

Sixty-three percent of the fish caught in the research traps near the mouth of the river were found dead.

“When I first started this business 23 years ago, extinction was never important,” said Jamie Holt, a leading Tribe fishing technician. said about salmon earlier this month. “If we have another year like we do now, we’ll talk about destruction.”

Nevertheless, the problems for fish in the United States are two-pronged because the effects of climate change are affecting the population.

In Tam Bay, Florida, and elsewhere, kills fish from the red stream – and the resulting odor and potential irritability of breathing – urged officials to call for state aid.

NPR reported on Tuesday According to the Pinellas County Solid Waste Division, 600 tons of dead marine life has been collected across the province since the end of June.

Florida State Commissioner for Agriculture Nikki Fried “Red Wave Destroys Ecosystem in Tam Bay Area” in the Orlando Sentinel report on Monday. “Our water quality should come before politics.”

When large fish are killed not something new and the flowering of algae is natural, NPR noted flowers that are rare in summer and in the Tam Bay area.

Warm waters, changes in salinity, more carbon dioxide, precipitation, and rising sea levels help create a hospitable environment for flowering, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

The reason for the fish’s death has been the subject of controversy – although Hurricane Elsa Hurricane recently swept off the coast of Florida.

Scientists are considering this whether the flourishing of the fast-spreading red stream is linked to the state’s decision last spring to pump 215 million gallons of polluted wastewater into the Gulf of Tam.

Last week, a spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission, Piney Point, said the discharge did not lead to a red stream in Tam Bay, but that it could have exacerbated it.
