From the California Academy of Sciences:
Specimens from 1895 Save Today’s Salmon
Coho specimens at the Academy, however, refuted that claim.
The specimens were collected in Santa Cruz County in 1895, pre-dating any hatchery records.
Based on this and other evidence, the National Marine Fisheries Service not only rejected the lumber company’s petition to de-list, but also elevated the coho salmon’s status from threatened to endangered.
