California’s commercial salmon fishing fleet and sport fishermen have not been allowed to fish for wild California King Salmon for two years. Previous to that, restrictions on when and where salmon could be caught had been in place, imposed by governmental agencies. The reason given for closing the salmon runs to fishing were based on a severe decline in the numbers of salmon successfully returning to their native river beginnings to spawn and for their offspring to return to the ocean.

This video explains the need to share limited water resources to allow enough water to flow into the rivers so the salmon can get back up river to spawn.
