Klamath Basin tribes gain attention for salmon

Representatives of four Klamath Basin tribes said their trip to Scotland to seek greater protections for fish was successful.

The protest by the Klamath, Karuk, Hoopa and Yurok tribes drew significant media attention. One member of Scotland's Parliament filed a motion to support the cause.

The tribal members who spoke to the shareholders meeting of ScottishPower said they were able to educate people on the effects of the dam on salmon. They say PacifiCorp, a U.S. subsidiary of the company, is willing to consider removing the dams.
