This project will use existing acoustic telemetry data from multiple sources 1) Quantify factors affecting migration routing of juvenile salmon emigrating from the Sacramento River, 2) Quantify factors affecting survival of juvenile salmon within specific migration routes, and 3) simulate population-level survival through the Delta under a limited number of historical and operational scenarios.
