Record warm summers in the Pacific Northwest and Scotland has almost wiped out salmon which are being "cooked" in rivers and streams

Record warm summers in the Pacific Northwest are adding to the threats facing salmon.
According to the Weather Channel, the salmon was said not to have stood a chance and became "cooked" in rivers and streams.
The salmon population is already in drastic decline due to overfishing, habitat loss and pollution.
Now higher temperatures in rivers and streams are killing adult salmon before they can reproduce.
Dwindling winter snowpack is also shrinking rivers and streams.
Fish Hatchery workers report seeing more perish in the stream beds before they can spawn.
Hatcheries are trying to help by adding aerators, and increasing water flow in some streams.
The federal government has issued a disaster declaration for Alaska's pink salmon fishery and several other salmon and crab fisheries along the West Coast. Gov.
Bill Walker requested the declaration after the 2017 pink salmon harvests in Kodiak, Prince William Sound, Chignik and lower Cook Inlet came in far below forecast, the Alaska Journal of Commerce reported.
The disaster declaration granted by U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker gave Kodiak and the other Alaska fisheries the ability to seek disaster relief assistance from Congress because of the unexpected large decreases in salmon returns.

The demise of salmon is even worse in Scotland...
It used to be the best salmon fishing in the world
But now Global warming is being blamed for Scotland's worst salmon season in living memory.
Some beats on famous rivers like the Spey and the Nith recorded not a single salmon caught during the entire season.
Just two salmon were caught on the River Fyne in Argyll this year, where once more than 700 were caught each season.
The number of fish caught by anglers has been so low that some estates have stopped selling permits for once-popular beats because there is no fish to catch.
Tourism has been hit, sales of salmon tackle have slumped and ghillies have lost their jobs.
Experts believe rising temperatures blamed on global warming have badly hit the salmon's feeding grounds with related changes in current patterns also affecting their migration.
Roger Brook, director of the Argyll Fisheries Trust, said: "Salmon are in decline everywhere but they're declining more on the west coast of Scotland and they're declining more the further down the west coast you go.
"It's dreadful now in Argyll.
It's a crisis in Argyll.
I don't know whether it's too late now to put it right."
This year's cold spring and the summer heatwave created the "perfect storm" for poor fishing conditions.
But experts believe the steep decline in numbers since the 1960s is deep-rooted and warn the future is bleak.
Survival rates for salmon at sea have fallen as low as 3 per cent with global warming and ocean fishing fleets among the likely causes.
Professor Ken Whelan, a leading salmon specialist investigating the downturn, said: "Absolutely there's a crisis in salmon fishing.
What we have now is a situation where you're looking at very modest numbers of fish coming back and you really can't afford to lose any from any kind of man-made effects."
Andrew Flitcroft, the editor of Trout and Salmon magazine, said:
"This has been undoubtedly the worst season I've witnessed in my lifetime." The Scotsman

  2. I can't speak about Scotland but, listen folks about salmon runs in the western U.S. and Alaska (also inc. British Columbia),FUKASHIMA AND 300 TONS OF NUCLEAR WASTE FLOWING INTO THE OCEAN EVERYDAY IS WHAT IS KILLING SALMON BY THE TENS OF THOUSANDS. OUR PACIFIC OCEAN WILL NEVER BE THE SAME BECAUSE OF JAPAN'S NUCLEAR DISASTER. WHY ARE THE PACIFIC SIDE SEA BIRDS DYING BY THE THOUSANDS? FACE IT, QUITE TRYING TO IGNORE IT.....THE FUKASHINA NUCLEAR WASTE IS KILLING SMALL FISH ETC., THE BIRDS FOOD SOURCE....THEY ARE STARVING !!

    YOU CAN SPECULATE ALL YOU WANT ABOUT GLOBAL WARMING ETC. BUT, DON'T SPECULATE ABOUT FUKASHIMA, ITS KILLING AND IT WILL KEEP ON KILLING. DON'T BE FOOLS AND EAT ANY TYPE OF SEA LIFE FROM THE PACIFIC...IT WILL KILL YOU AND YOUR OFFSPRING WAY BEFORE YOUR TIME.

    1. spot on anonymous the evidence is over whelming fukishima is the culprit not global warming. theres no such thing as global warming.its a myth. the earth is now going through a global cooling phase.

  3. Hey! Gary Walton! You NEED to write another article on FUKASHIMA effects on the Pacific Ocean.

    Do it as a continuation off this one.

  4. I agree more with all of the above comments than the conclusions of the actual article. It is indeed true that GEO-ENGINEERING is wrecking the climate all over the world. It is also true that Fukashima has already devastated the Pacific Ocean, and not only salmon are decimated, but also many other types of fish are currently in very low stock according to fishermen. As for here in Scotland, and I live here in Scotland, I don't believe that man-made so-called Global Warming is the cause for the reduction in salmon, but much more likely is the pollution that we have suffered in the form of Chemtrails, which posion the atmosphere and kill the wild life and probably the fish as well. When will people rise up and fight against the destgruction of our planet by incessant GEO-ENGINEERING. In the UK it is a fact, from my own observations that the arrogant elite down South who have a weather machine in Wales (HAARP).Every time it gets too cold in the UK, they switch on the weather machine which alters the postition of the Jet stream around the UK and pushes it to the north of the UK for weeks on end, and instead of predicted winter snowy waether coming, it changes overnight to very mild weather and sometimes lasts for weeks. It is so obvious that our weather here in Scotland is manufactured by GEO-ENGINEERING, but what is the long term effects of altering the weather for convenience. Perhsaps the death of the salmon here in Sctland is a warning of the damage that has indeed been done by man, but not the people, but the elite who rule the planet.

    1. If the UK could push the jet stream further north, not only would that action change the weather in the UK but also Holland Germany Poland and Russia, if it was so easy wouldn't Germany or Russia just push it back again which would result in a yo-yo jet stream, which I know, from years of studying is not the case, last summer for instance the jet stream was too far north from May till September, wrong place but, stable for 5 months which caused heat waves IN ALL COUNTRIES stretching from Canada, the US, the UK (Scotland included) and Ireland, Europe, Russia, China Japan and the Koreas, all those areas mentioned breaking warm records, 5, of the hottest years ever recorded have been the last 5 years, while I do agree with you about the spraying and, I do know the military are trying to manipulate the weather but, sorry Stephen, these extreme weather events, which appear to be accelerating as every month goes by are being affected by something much bigger than the military and HAARP.

  5. Fish cooking in streams? What? Really? WHAT? are you talking about? Shut up, SHUT UP.
