Below is a wikipedia entry about totoaba and why it is an endangered species.  The damming and overuse of the Colorado River has changed the salinity of the totoaba spawning grounds.  That is severely affecting the totoaba population.  They are a slow growing fish that does not spawn until it is 6-7 years old. Also, the Chinese use totoaba bladders in “traditional medicine” which can sell for 20,000 each. Their own related species the bahaba is in very short supply so they have switched to totaba.

Rex’s Bluefish Story

Music for Fish Kill Boys-Audionautix “Heavy Action” with comic lyric by John “Crappie Hippie” King

“Fish Kill, Fish Kill, the Rainbow Fish was murdered by industrial swill,

No D.O., Nowhere to go, suffocated, belly up, they’ll swim no more,

Fish Kill, what if you had gills? We sow our own destruction Fish Kill!” (big explosion, black confetti rains down)
