The Plan to Save 17 Million Salmon From California’s Megadrought

Not a word about the status of the wild fish.

Workers at the state’s Department of Fish and Wildlife will load almost 17 million young Chinook salmon from four of their hatching locations in the Central Valley into dozens of climate-controlled tanker trucks. They’ll then drop them off in coastal waters around the San Pablo, San Francisco, Half Moon, and Monterey bays. State estimates show it will take about 146 truckloads carrying 130,000 fish apiece, collectively traveling more than 30,000 miles, to transport all the salmon.
