Is That The Salton Sea In Your Pocket Or Are You Just Happy To See Me?


The Salton Sea is 225 feet below sea level


It was created by a flood of the Colorado River in 1905


That was not stopped for two years


The flood created the largest lake in California


In the 1950s it was a bustling tourist destination


30% of the total population of the American White Pelican live there


The salinity of the lake is rising so quickly that within a decade or so it will be completely dead


The only fish in the lake now are tilapia


If you have a valid California fishing license you can catch as many as you want


There are over 2 million of them in the Salton Sea


They are tasty in fish tacos


With salsa verde and lots of melted cheese
