Nevada tribe celebrates plentiful runs of fish

The Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe of Nevada is celebrating the highest runs of the endangered Pyramid Lake sucker fish.

After limited spawns in recent years, runs of the fish, known as cui-ui in the Paiute language, are expected to hit 800,000 by May. That will surpass the 1999 record of 585,000 fish.

The fish is the lifeblood of the tribe but has been on the endangered species list since 1967.
