Biologists with the Yurok and Hoopa tribes in northern California estimate that 30,000 salmon have died in the Klamath River.

The exact reason for the deaths is not known. But tribal, state and federal officials know there is a problem.

The Department of Interior plans to release more water to the river in hopes of saving the fish.
