Research in Action: Small Salmon, Big Threat

Juvenile salmon and trout are balancing on a “knife-edge” of survival. The pools in which they grow up have been known to dry up almost completely and recent drought conditions are making it even worse. Researchers at UC Berkeley are trying to find out how much water these fish need to survive in the streams and pools that they have lived in for thousands of years. “We hope our research can help assure their survival into the future while still providing water for other uses,” said head researcher Stephanie Carlson.
