Project: Juvenile Salmon Distribution, Abundance and Growth in Restored and Relict Delat Marsh Habitats

Description: Project is to conduct a study that will to determine whether observed salmon responses match the assumptions and expectations of habitat suitability and life-cycle models currently guiding resource management and habitat restoration in the Bay-Delta, while at the same time supplying much-needed quantitative information to improve these models. The broader purpose is to improve these models to allow more objective and accurate predictions of alternative management and restoration actions intended to recover Central Valley salmon populations.

Reference Number: 3600BP1896013

Implemented By: Department of Water Resources

Objective: The overarching goal of this project is to quantify the distribution, abundance, residence time and growth of juvenile salmon within the Bay-Delta.
