SARSAS is trying to do with one stream, the Auburn Ravine, what must be done to all streams and rivers on the entire West Coast and that is to make the entire length of the ravine navigable for Anadromous Fish.
The health and well-being of Salmon is directly linked to that of people. If we improve the health and well-being of Salmon, we improve the health and well-being of mankind and therefore ourselves.
Salmon are as resilient and adaptive as humans; when they can no longer adapt, neither can mankind. They need our help….NOW.

Biography: Peter Moyle has been working on the ecology of California's freshwater and estuarine fishes since 1969, culminating in Inland Fishes of California (2002, UC Press). He has co-authored numerous papers on the ecology, status and trends of California's native and alien fishes, including documenting declines of salmon, steelhead, and other anadromous fishes in California. Present research focuses on climate change, effects of drought on fishes, floodplain management, and reconciliation ecology . He is lead author of the Just-issued report, Fish Species of Special Concern in California, now available on the CDFW website. This report reflects his recent evaluation of the status of the entire fish fauna of California, including all salmonids .
