Let the River Flow: The Fight To Save Salmon

In a teleconference, Managing Attorney Todd True discusses Earthjustice's work to protect and restore iconic salmon species, which have been pushed to the brink of extinction by overstretched water resources, dam construction, pollution and development.

Salmon are a key indicator of ecosystem health for most major west coast river systems. Once abundant, these fish have been pushed to the brink of extinction by overstretched water resources, dam construction, pollution, and development.

For more than a quarter century, Earthjustice has been fighting to help salmon survive and recover, on behalf of recreational and commercial fishermen, conservation groups, and Native American tribes. Much of this litigation has focused on ensuring adequate flows of cool, high quality water at the right times in the West's salmon-producing rivers to sustain the fish.

This teleconference was held on October 17, 2013.
