This developing project is very special, AND very badly needed.  Check it

Subject: Salmon Water Now


All: I thought you'd like to see Duck's (with brother-in-law and filmmaker
Bruce Tokars) work in progress on the video on salmon water.  They plan to
do some more filming in Fort Bragg and Eureka and include, in addition to
the commercial fishermen, some recreational and tribal representatives as
well.  A website is being established and bumper stickers are on the way.
Just in time for the Million Boat Flotilla to converge on Sacramento on 16
August as the Legislature takes up debate on a Peripheral Canal and the
State presses the Feds to weaken the protections in the BiOp for Central
Valley salmon. - Zeke

Salmon Water, Now!
August 4, 2009

"California's commercial salmon fishing fleet and sport fishermen have not
been allowed to fish for wild California King Salmon for two years. Previous
to that, restrictions on when and where salmon could be caught had been in
place, imposed by governmental agencies. The reason given for closing the
salmon runs to fishing were based on a severe decline in the numbers of
salmon successfully returning to their native river beginnings to spawn and
for their offspring to return to the ocean. 

This video explains the need to share limited water resources to allow
enough water to flow into the rivers so the Salmon and get back up river to
spawn."  View it at: http://vimeo.com/5930504
