Project: Nutritional Quality of Zooplankton as Prey for Fish in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta (2047)

Description: The proposed research aims to measure essential nutritional status for zooplankton taxa and will calculate food-quality indices for fish. On the basis of nutritional plankton and biomass values, spatial patterns as well as long-term and recent changes in plankton quality associated with compositional shifts will be estimated.

Reference Number: 3860-P84-652

Implemented By: University of California, Davis

Objective: Advance the knowledge and understanding of the complex water supply issues and ecosystems of  the Bay-Delta system as an aid to Delta policy makers and managers working to achieve the two coequal goals of providing a more reliable water supply for California and protecting, restoring, and enhancing the Delta ecosystem.
