Subservience to Fish

California’s costly subservience to fish
If a team of Martian explorers landed in California, they would likely report back to their leaders that the state is ruled by a few powerful fish species, and that humans have been forced into involuntary servitude to support them.
What else could a reasonable Martian think? Humans paid billions of dollars over decades to construct water infrastructure capable of irrigating crops and sustaining cities that are hundreds of miles away from rainfall, then throttled the whole system to protect fish.
