Funding for this this planning project will be use to identify, assess, and prioritize specific sites in Humboldt Bay tributaries, with a focus on the stream-estuary ecotones for non-natal juvenile salmonid habitat restoration projects that will not only benefit ESA-listed rearing juvenile salmonids, but also other ESA-listed fish species such as tidewater goby and long fin smelt. A technical advisory team will be formed comprised of State and federal resource agency biologists and other stakeholders to guide and provide feedback related to each of the project work tasks, especially the identification and prioritization of potential sites, as well as the development of engineering level conceptual designs. This collaborative process should facilitate agency approvals of subsequent project phases.
