Tonight: Fate of California salmon at Cafe Scientifique


Steven Lindley, an ecologist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, will talk about threats facing wild California salmon at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 14, at SRI International in Menlo Park.

The occasion is the September meeting of Cafe Scientifique, a free monthly meeting at which the public can explore and debate scientific and technological issues.

Many species of salmon have been in such grave danger that authorities banned salmon fishing altogether off the California coast for the 2008 and 2009 fishing seasons. The economic impact on commercial fishermen was severe, and Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger sought disaster relief of $290 million, but many of the affected fishermen reportedly supported the closure, according to a Cafe statement.
