Banner Year Expected For Local Salmon

Janny Hu, May 6, 2012, SFGate (San Francisco Chronicle):

“…Now, thanks to better water management and ocean conditions, biologists are predicting that as many as 820,000 fish – the most in at least seven years – will return to spawn in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta this year.…”

It’s so great when there’s good news like this. Drawing is from one of my treasured books, The Fishes of Alaska, printed 1907 by the Bureau of Fisheries, US Department of Commerce and Labor. The pen and ink drawings are delicately hand tinted.
