Why so many lies these fish always get this way from being in freshwater and not salt the always get diseases when the get close to spawning out yes warm water temperatures in the smaller rivers that are not as deep causes less oxygen so they are more prone to die but these fish will spawn out and die. Notice the video title then they go on to say possibly could be happening in the Columbia River ..... why cant there be transparency instead of always pushing a agenda and the latest agenda is removal of all dams. Those fished they showed were way up river about to spawn out.
Nobody mentions the Indians that gill net a ton of fish all year long and then sell them stop that and more alot more fish will make it up to the spawn grounds helping the species climate change is a joke we have not been on this earth long enough to know its weather cycles.
Wait. Salmon bodies historically deteriorate while returning to spawn, yes warmer water is bad, but let's face it, those involved in publication of this video are not providing to you all the facts. Returning salmon always began the deterioration process upon entering fresh water, not feeding.
Dams usually create colder water downstream. Fish ladders work. Holding back water is safer than letting it go and praying for rain.
Perhaps these fish had to pass through farmed Salmon and got sick.
Salmon used to return to the exact stream they were born in to mate and die.
Their bodies fed the trees which shaded the streams and kept them cool.
Which is better a dam to go around or no water at all?
Where have you people been it happens every year why is it a big deal now come on it always heats up to the same temperature every year then they swim all the way up to there river Okanagan, Wenatchee, and wait there for that river to cool down people need to look at why are some of the sockeye waiting so long to start up the Columbia ,this is nothing new, come on
