How did the fish get into the salton sea?

    The Salton Sea is not man-made, for a start. You’ll want to read the history of the Alamo Canal and the Salton Sea in Wikipedia. They have a peculiar and interesting history.

    Since in floods the Colorado River overflows into the Alamo River, which in turn drains to the Salton Sink, fish would have come from that.

    After the recent flood in 1905, in the 1920s the area started to become a tourist attraction, specificially for water recreation. At that point it certainly would have occurred to sports fisherman to dump breeding fish in (officially or unofficially). 

    Today, the commercial Salton Sea fishery, according to the Salton Sea Authority, is “called among the most productive in the world”.
