its not really anything new, perhaps because CNN reported on it that its blowing up in news outlets.  Seems like the new thing may be the have isolated the death causing chemical and lobby and focus on banning it.

anyways good for it to get out in the media and have people think about salmon.

The Science article is the most current and definitive on the topic (that's why they got it published in Science).  They finally narrowed it down to the specific chemical that is causing the die-offs (6PPD), whereas for years before they just thought it was something in tire particles/residue.  Hopefully they can find a suitable safer replacement for 6PPD and get it in the industry quickly.

Has similar significant coho pre-spawn mortality been noted in BC urban streams? Or are there no streams similar in nature to those in Seattle?

Saw several dead fish early this season on the banks of my local creek. The fish were in decent shape and weren't spawned out. I wondered at the time why there were so many dead ones... perhaps related to this type of pollution. The fish in the photo below was more silver on the other side but I flipped it over because someone's off-leash dog chewed off the other side of its face just before I snapped the photo :o

I discovered some salmon in a very small urban stream near my home.  Couple of days ago while walking I heard a commotion and found a man and his off leash dog, the owner said we were " just checking the fish out".  There were several live as well as spawned out fish about.
