Plaintiffs in Long Fight Over Endangered Salmon Hope a Resolution Is Near

Once again the plight of Columbia Basin salmon is making national news. The New York Times has published an article written by Mark Walker and Chris Cameron which discusses the most recent developments in this decades-long struggle to restore Columbia salmon runs. The article provides historical context for readers who may be unfamiliar with the nuances of the issues. The primary focus though is the attention both the Biden administration and the Northwest Democratic leadership are now bringing to bear on finding workable solutions to this long-standing problem. NSIA is tentatively hopeful that this engagement by the highest levels of government and the complimentary findings of the most recent federal and state-generated reports will finally be enough to tip cautious consideration into positive actions – before it is too late for the once-mighty salmon runs of the Columbia and Snake Rivers.
