California Chinook Salmon also face Catastrophic Decline

In 2007, another mystery in the decline of wild life population unfolded in Central Valley - Chinook salmon essentially went missing from spawning upstream. In a dramatic move on April 10th, 2008, the Pacific Fisheries Management Council voted to ban all fishing of Chinook salmon for the year's season.

The "Silence of the Salmon" in addition to the bees confirms easily what I thought as obvious - the entire eco-system is under great assault, and we human beings are still in darkness over the degree of damage already caused.

Ecologists have been warning us for years.

I am certain more "Silencing" is to come.
