More Salmon News

A judge in California on Monday gave the federal government three more months to finish a new set of rules to protect endangered winter-run Chinook salmon, spring-run Chinook salmon and Central Valley steelhead.

Environmentalists didn't object to the extension, though they did express concern that three more months would pass with the fish species - who they said are struggling for survival - being managed under a plan that U.S. District Judge Oliver W. Wanger has already said is flawed.

They also reserved the right to change their minds and seek additional court action if necessary.
