Project: Drought-Related High Water Temperature Impacts Survival of California Salmonids Through Disease, Increasing Predation Risk

Description: The Project is to evaluate the effects of high water temperatures associated with climate change and extreme drought conditions on the health and physiological condition of native Chinook salmon in California by addressing disease and predation risks. Funds will be use to conduct studies consisting of field assessments and laboratory experiments to evaluate the general health, the presence of and physiological response to pathogens, and predation risks of Chinook salmon.
