Most state native game fish face extinction
A new report by noted fish biologist Peter Moyle (a character in the documentary) is a frightening look at the future of California's trout, steelhead and salmon populations. Twenty one of thirty species may face extinction by the end of the century. The main reasons: dams, global warming and the lack of cool, clear water that the fish require to thrive.
Here's an excellent article in the SF Chronicle by Jane Kay.
