Summer Steelhead Listed as Endangered Under the California Endangered Species Act

Press release from Friends of the Eel River:

The California Fish and Game Commission voted unanimously to list summer steelhead in four North Coast watersheds — the Eel, Mad, and Mattole Rivers, and Redwood Creek — as Endangered under the California Endangered Species Act. The decision comes in response to Friends of the Eel River’s 2018 petition. The Commission also listed Klamath spring Chinook salmon (as E?) under CESA in the same meeting, in response to a petition from the Salmon River Restoration Council and the Karuk tribe.
