Record warm weather continues to threaten Pacific salmon, federal panel says – CBC

Our inability to stop global warming is destroying our fish.  Our politicians continue to fiddle while the earth burns.

Record warm temperatures along the B.C. coast are continuing to threaten Pacific salmon populations, according to a federal government update. Unusually warm ocean conditions in 2015, spurred by both the Blob and El Nino, are expected to have lasting effects on Pacific salmon returns over the next three years, including increased mortality rates, says a report from a Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) panel of scientists. Panel members held a news conference in Vancouver Monday to release their findings. Jon Hernandez reports. (CBC)
