Salmon in the north pacific are dying according to The World Wildlife Fund because of the changing climate and ocean conditions. The Alaskan Department of Fish and Game stated that the Sockeye Salmon catch in Bristol Bay the largest sockeye fishery in the world, was half of what was expected in 1998 and the lowest in 20 years.
The Canadian Department for Fisheries and Oceans warned that salmon may not be able to survive in the warmer ocean temperatures recorded in the late 1990's. If the trend continues Sockeye Salmon could be extinct by the middle of next century.
