Video: Dept. of Fish and Wildlife Fisheries Manager admits he wants flows increased but can’t say why.

The video below says it all. The Water Board is willing to sacrifice the economies of Stanislaus, Merced, and San Joaquin all on the hope that increasing flows in the San Joaquin River might improve the fisheries. The worst part is that the Water Board continues to ignore non-flow alternatives such as predator suppression and ocean harvest procedures that have been shown to actually help restore fish populations without wasting precious water on a hope.
