California Advisory Committee on Salmon and Steelhead Trout ( CACSST )

California Advisory Committee on Salmon and Steelhead Trout ( CACSST )

"California Advisory Committee on Salmon and Steelhead Trout (CACSST) was originally created in 1970 as an advisory body to the California Legislature and the Department of Fish and Game. The CAC was expected to operate autonomously, helping ensure the political will needed to restore California's declining salmon runs. However, since the early 1990s the CAC has been neither funded nor staffed to conduct the studies and other activities necessary to fully comply with their directive to oversee California's salmon restoration program. Likewise, although annual reporting, accompanied by proposed legislative changes, as needed, was originally anticipated, it has been twenty years since the last full CAC report to the Joint Legislative Committee on Fisheries and Aquaculture was prepared."
