Fish Barging


This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Every year, juvenile salmon and steelhead are shipped downstream to the mouth of the Columbia on special barges. This allows them to avoid deadly dams on their journey to the sea, but it may cause other problems for the endangered fish.

First Broadcast: 1996
Producer: Jim Newman
