But you still have the problem of already having the introduced sucker in the upper basin listed as threatened. Seems like a judge is going to have to decide which fish is more important, the already listed sucker or the sturgeon. Looks like a lot of litigation is going to be needed to resolve this. Then there are the rancher/farmers in the upper basin who were promised cheap irrigation water from the dams with water rights already in their hands for this water. And we know how the average Joe non-fisher thinks about the "poor rancher/farmer" getting raked over by the regulators.
