Our salmon are in hot water

salmon with fungus

The Lower Columbia River waters are so warm that sockeye salmon have sought out the cool water trickling out of the Little White Salmon hatchery pipe outflow for relief. Many are diseased including the sockeye swimming in the backround with large patches of fungas from warm water exposure.  Many die in these shallow waters just off the Columbia.
