Save Our Salmon Act or the SOS Act

(Sec. 3) This bill amends the Central Valley Project Improvement Act to exclude striped bass from the project to require reasonable efforts to ensure all anadromous fish naturally produce at twice the average levels in Central Valley rivers and streams.

Striped bass are non-native anadromous fish that prey on native salmon and steelhead and must be reduced in abundance to prevent the extinction of Central Valley salmon and steelhead.
