California salmon season canceled for 2nd year in a row

Governor Newsom is requesting a federal emergency, as California's salmon season has been canceled for the second year in a row. The Pacific Fishery Management Council made the request this week due to the continued low number of Chinook Salmon. The governor says the emergency request will help bring financial support to the affected fishing communities, while those in the local salmon fishing industry blame the state for what they call "irresponsible" water policies. KTVU's Alex Savidge and Jana Katsuyama speak with Scott Artis, Executive Director of the Golden State Salmon Association about the decision to close the season.
