The article discusses a study by the National Research Council which focused on water and environmental management in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, California. The report cites the declining habitat, predators and invasive species as important factors that put strain on the Delta. It indicates that focusing on a single stressor will not solve the fish population problem and more study must be conducted in areas related to water and environmental management of Delta water.
