In the final episode of our five-part Edge Of Extinction video series we talk to experts about the impressive but endangered steelhead trout.
More than 60 steelhead trout were killed in Berkeley’s Codornices Creek recently, likely as a result of 20 gallons of foam retardant used to extinguish a garbage truck fire in early April, authorities report.
One community member surveyed the area from Eighth Street to San Pablo Avenue “and photographed around 60+ dead fish” after firefighters had to use foam to put out a garbage truck fire on Rose Street on Wednesday.
