Sometimes I feel they should forget about all this help to save the Salton Sea.
This is why. I came here in 1966 and one of the first things I heard was in one year there wouldn't be one fish alive in the Salton Sea.
Fact No. 1 — there are more fish in the Salton Sea now than there were then.
Fact No. 2 — any saltwater will have fish die-offs.
I once lived on Tampa Bay in Florida, which is a part of the Gulf of Mexico. We had fish die-offs so bad our throats were burning and they were hauling fish away in huge dump trucks.
It has been almost 30 years since I was told in one year there would be no more fish in the Salton Sea. Maybe the sea can do better on its own.
