Abstract

Existing hydroelectric projects have seriously reduced anadromous fish populations in the Northwest, and hundreds of new project proposals portend additional losses. As a result, federal and state fish and wildlife agencies and Indian tribes with treaty fishing rights have become active litigants in FERC hydroelectric proceedings. The agencies and tribes are seeking improved consideration of the public interest in fishery resources.
