The article focuses on the results of the federal order to curb the salmon season on a 700-mile stretch of the California and Oregon Coast. The restrictions are formulated to increase the number of Klamath River chinook salmon. It was observed that poor water quality, disease, and changing ocean conditions have contributed to the decline of the fish. Farmers, fishermen, tribes, and environmental groups has collaborated to solve the problem by removing the river's lower four dams that block access to the spawning habitat.
