Project: Quantifying Factors Affecting Migration Routing and Survival of Juvenile Late-Fall Chinook Salmon in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta (2045)

Description: 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.

Reference Number: 3860-P84-658

Implemented By: U.S. Geological Survey

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.
