Endangered Species Act

Fingerling Chinook salmon are dumped into a holding pen as they are transfered from a truck into the Sacramento River on March 25, 2014 in Rio Vista, California. Low water levels on the Sacramento River forced wildlife officials to truck more than 400,000 fingerling Chinook salmon from the Coleman National Fish Hatchery in Anderson to the Sacramento River in Rio Vista, a nearly 300 mile journey.
