I've been following the recent breaking news on the BC Salmon and thought I'd share the story with you guys.
Salmon vanish - Experts can't
It seems as though, the BC Salmon industry could be facing an unprecedented recession of its own.
It has no fish... roughly 10 % of what was expected to come up river...
This is staggering news, and frightening to say the least.
Upon searching to find if anything was posted about this, I managed to find an old thread on here from 2008.... stating the same scenario, only in
Sacramento River Salmon Thread - circa 2008
"The Chinook salmon that swim upstream to spawn in the fall, the most robust run in the Sacramento River, have disappeared. The almost complete
collapse of the richest and most dependable source of Chinook salmon south of Alaska left gloomy fisheries experts struggling for reliable

I'm wondering how the population of salmon in the Sacramento is doing now, a year later....
