Posted Thu Aug 7 2008: from The Register-Guard:
Agency: Chemicals a danger to salmon http://apocadocs.com/s.pl?1218121968
"Three insecticides in common use around Oregon homes and farms pose a serious threat to endangered salmon and have been found extensively in Oregon watersheds. The insecticides chlorpyrifos, malathion and diazinon as they have been commonly used are likely to lead to the extinction of more than two dozen salmon or steelhead runs in California, Oregon and Washington, according to a draft biological opinion by the National Marine Fisheries Service, the federal agency that functions as a watchdog for ocean-going species."
