About Time

Good news for salmon, bad news for cats.

"Federal regulators voted Thursday to impose severe restrictions on salmon fishing off the coasts of Oregon and Northern California to protect dwindling populations in the Klamath River.

The Pacific Fishery Management Council decided to close about 700 miles of coastline to commercial salmon fishing for most of June and July, the most productive months of the season. Federal fishery officials said the closures were the broadest ever imposed on the West Coast salmon fishery."
