Is the End of Salmon Near?

A warming climate is likely to wipe out spring-run Chinook salmon in at least one California watershed by the century’s end, found a new study.

No matter which climate projections the researchers used, warmer waters spelled major trouble for the fish in the coming decades if people do nothing to help the fish. And the findings are likely to apply to a variety of salmon species up and down the West Coast, especially in California where temperatures are closest to the tipping point.
