Global Warming A Threat to Fresh-Water Fish

According to a study just published by the National Wildlife Federation,  global warming represents a threat to fresh-water fish in the Northwest.

The Southern California Steelhead Trout is believed to be uniquely well-suited to survive warm waters and drought, which is one good reason many scientists are keen to see the variety that once swarmed up the Ventura River and other Ventura County waterways return. If given the opportunity it could quite possibly thrive and extend its habitat northward as the climate warms — but only if it survives. It’s currently on the endangered list.
