EPA Will Limit Pesticide Use to Protect Salmon

Last week the EPA announced that it will implement new pesticide regulations based on the National Marine Fisheries Service's (NMFS) most recent biological opinion regarding the use of pesticides. The changes are designed to reduce the exposure of wild salmon to harmful pesticides and should greatly benefit populations of wild salmon in agricultural areas. More information in the Columbia Basin Bulletin.
