Researchers Question New Dams

Thanks to Aquafornia, I found a link to an article in the California Farmer and through that to a provocative research paper: "Directed Connectivity Among Fish Populations in a Riverine Network," published in the online issue of Journal of Applied Ecology.

The major point is that Schwarzenegger's plans for new dams as part of his response to the California Water Crisis, just may be part of a continuing reduction of fish populations, first in the rivers and later in the ocean fisheries.

Remember, the hearings on the dueling proposals to solve this problem start Thursday, Oct. 4. If you have not taken action, I urge you to call your state legislators and demand action for a sustainable future following the guidelines I posted previously here and here.
