Have the state’s efforts to remove California sea lions been effective?

The states’ efforts have not stopped predation below Bonneville Dam, but they have certainly limited the number of California sea lions feeding on salmon and steelhead below Bonneville Dam each year. Wildlife managers estimate that the states’ efforts at Bonneville have saved over 25,000 spring chinook that would have otherwise been taken by California sea lions.
