Sacramento River salmon feed the eagles nesting in Redding, California (Shasta County, USA).
Eagles and the fish that they feed upon both require good flows of clean water in the California Delta and Sacramento River.
River conservation is needed to restore fish populations in the Sacramento River and California Delta.
"Although last year officials with the Bush and Schwarzenegger administrations claimed that “ocean conditions” spurred the collapse, a coalition of recreational, commercial fishermen, Indian Tribes, conservationists and independent scientists pointed to increased water exports from the California Delta, declining water quality and other freshwater habitat problems as the key factors in the collapse."
