"It was probably moved in a big flood event many thousands of years ago and deposited at the bottom of a lake," says Green, a former irrigation district leader and now a project manager for the California Water Institute at Fresno State University.

Or how about 1879 before live striped bass fish were shipped in a rail car from New Jersey and dumped into the San Joaquin Delta without regard for the impact on native species like smelt or migrating salmon? Other bass species were soon introduced and 133 years later, the California Fish and Game Commission protected them by declaring all to be native species.
