California water: Is anyone listening?


By Robert F. Service

From ScienceInsider - Thursday, March 29, 2012

Coalition response...NRC scientists clearly identified multiple stressors that are impacting Delta fish populations. These stressors include poor water quality resulting from cities dumping ammonia into waterways, non-native predator fish that feast on juvenile salmon as they migrate through the Delta, lack of habitat and poor ocean conditions that rob salmon of a food supply. More important, the NRC scientists discounted efforts to single out an individual stressor. They stated on Page 8-- "Consideration of the large number of stressors and their effects and interactions leads to the conclusion that efforts to eliminate any one stressor are unlikely to reverse declines in the listed species."
