Slaughter on the Delta – 2.9 million fish killed in 5 days!

From IndyBay Media – Monday, may 23, 2011

Coalition response...The author’s continued criticism of the pumps that send water to 25 million Californians and several million acres of farmland that grow our food is misleading to the public. He fails to acknowledge what scientists have repeatedly said...the number of salmon taken at the pumps is minimal in comparison to the number of salmon eaten by predators. Biologists have also explained that the high number of splittail taken at the pumps is a direct result of this year’s conditions that have pushed the splittail population to such high levels. This is also a reason why the splittail has been denied protection under the Endangered Species Act...there are too many of them to warrant such protection.
