Thing I’ve been hearing a lot recently: “Real Time Fish monitoring should dictate when the CVP & SWP export pumps are turned off to protect #endangeredspecies. See fish-pump off...no fish-pump on”.

There is *so* much wrong with this, it will require a #thread to unpack.
2a) Real time monitoring is not individual surveillance. Ecological monitoring will always miss individuals, esp. for rare species. (ie, we call it “sampling” & use statistics).

Monitoring will likely miss rare species & the early/late migrants that populations depend on.
2b) This point — the need to maintain life history diversity to prevent declines — can’t be overstated. Just protecting a narrow slice of these species’ diversity is a recipe for further decline & loss of resilience.
