Feds pledge $2.7 million for salmon recovery in Klamath Basin


KLAMATH, Calif. — The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation has announced $2.7 million in funding for projects aimed at helping coho salmon in the Klamath River basin.

The species is listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act and has seen its numbers dwindle amid rising river temperatures.

The grant will be administered by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, with help from federal and state agencies, and will prioritize projects that improve habitat and fish passage in the lower part of the river and tributaries.
