FISH NEWS: End of Spring-Run Chinook Draws Near

FISH NEWS: END OF SPRING-RUN CHINOOK

No Genetic Reserve in Fall-Run Salmon Populations

Human actions impact wild salmon's ability to evolve,
University of California - Davis, December 4, 2018.

MAIN POINTS

Near Extinction
“...spring-run chinook are on the brink of extinction in most locations where they haven't already been lost.”

Sensitive to Everything Human
"...because they rely on clean, cold water throughout hot summer months, spring-run chinook are more vulnerable than fall-run chinook" to activities such as logging, mining, dams and water diversion, and to climate change.”

“Once spring-run chinook salmon disappear, they are not likely to re-emerge, indicates genetic analysis of the revered wild fish in a study led by the University of California, Davis.”

"If you lose the spring-run gene, you could potentially lose spring-run chinook forever.”

Fish Rapidly Shifting Ranges following Rapid Temp Changes

CLIMATE-CHANGING FISH

Fish Rapidly Shifting Ranges following Rapid Temp Changes

Warming waters caused rapid -- and opposite -- shifts in connected marine communities,
Cell Press, November 8. 2018.

MAIN POINTS

"Two connected marine ecosystems--the Eastern English Channel and Southern North Sea--experienced big and opposite changes in their fish communities over a 30-year period”

“Rapid warming drove smaller ocean fishes to shift abruptly northward from one ecosystem to the other."

Warming Disrupting Fishing Grounds
“...increase in the frequency and severity of climate oscillations and extreme warming events could trigger shifts in the distribution and abundance of species with profound consequences for the way ecosystems around the world function.”

"This warming caused an abrupt change in fish communities as small, rapidly maturing fishes, particularly pelagic fishes, simultaneously decreased in the English Channel and increased in the North Sea,."

Court Ruling to Preserve the Last of the Salmon?

FISH & WATER

Preserving the Last of the Salmon?

West’s rivers are hot enough to cook salmon to death. Will this court ruling keep them cool?
Sac Bee, October 23, 2018.

MAIN POINTS

River-Cooked Salmon
"...salmon being cooked to death by the thousands in rivers that have become overheated as water flows dwindle."

Stop Cooking Salmon
"...a federal judge in Seattle has directed the Environmental Protection Agency, in a ruling with implications for California and the Pacific Northwest, to find a way to keep river waters cool."

Ruling
"...ruling last week was sparked by an ecological catastrophe in 2015, when an estimated 250,000 sockeye salmon died on the Columbia and Snake because the waters got too warm. In California, more than 95 percent of juvenile winter-run Chinook salmon perished in the Sacramento River in 2014 and 2015 when temperatures spiked during the worst of the drought."

“...it must develop a plan to keep water temperatures low in the Columbia River and its main tributary, the Snake, to protect multiple varieties of salmon and steelhead that are covered by the Endangered Species Act.”
