A little water could make a big difference for endangered salmon

CALIFORNIA, Gold Ridge RCD – Even small amounts of running water — less than a gallon per second — could mean the difference between life or death for juvenile coho salmon in coastal California streams…John Green is a project manager for the Gold Ridge Resource Conservation District, who has already begun applying the new research to their work restoring flow in salmon streams. He says, “The big value in this research is that it has given us an idea of how much water is needed to improve fish survival. From that, we start to understand the kinds of projects we need to build and what their impacts will be.”
