Trump Administration Plan Allows Delta Water Managers to Kill Off Winter-Run Chinook Salmon

East Bay Express

Eight-hundred pages into the text of a lengthy new report, federal biologists have quietly granted government water managers permission to nearly exterminate an endangered run of Sacramento River salmon... "This is an extinction plan," warns Jon Rosenfield, a scientist with the organization San Francisco Baykeeper who has reviewed the report. "Zero plus zero plus zero equals zero, which means jeopardizing this species' survival in the wild is explicitly permitted. This is directly contrary to the letter and spirit of the Endangered Species Act."
