Fish Ecology Subscribers:
We are looking for references that report on the potential or observed
effects of U.S. Endangered Species Act (ESA) listings of fish species on
local/regional water and land use activities. Case studies of effects on
municipalities, irrigation districts and agricultural activities in the western
U.S. are of the most interest. Perhaps there are a few subscribers that
have worked with the Colorado squawfish (Ptychocheilus lucius),
Sacramento River winter chinook (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) or Delta
smelt (Hypomesus transpacificus) that can help steer us toward any
literature available (published, grey, legal filings or private industry
sources) that focuses on this topic.
Thanks in advance for your responses. Please post directly to me.
