Perhaps nowhere else in the world is water resource management and fisheries management so connected as in California. A vast array of dams and reservoirs in the state provide freshwater for public use, but also impact the health of salmon. For example, in the Sacramento River, the spawning grounds for the endangered winter-run Chinook salmon are solely reliant on the cold water released from Shasta Reservoir upstream. How climate change will impact the ability of upstream reservoirs to sustain water resources for fish and public use remains an important question in California, with implications for drought-prone regions around the world.
Join Miles Daniels as he discusses his research exploring the connections between water management, climate change, and salmon health.
