Kristen Boyles, Staff Attorney for Earthjustice explains the most recent judicial decision concerning the Klamath River. The Klamath that runs in Southern Oregon and California used to be the third largest salmon producer.

Meanwhile the Federal government is urged to close salmon fishing along 700 hundred miles of coastline in Oregon and California.
