Preliminary data from a federal study of spill and
salmon survival at The Dalles Dam indicates that less spill results in
higher survival, say Army Corps of Engineers fish biologists.
But the Columbia Inter-Tribal Fish Commission says The Dalles Dam Spillway
Survival Study is flawed research that has not been subjected to proper
peer review and that researchers are harming thousands of listed and unlisted
salmon that come from tribal hatchery programs under U.S. v. Oregon.
