Ocean salmon survey

The broad objective of our Ocean Salmon Survey is to quantify the spatial distribution and physiological condition of salmonid stocks in the central portion of the California Current Ecosystem.

Survival and migratory patterns of juvenile salmonids

Starting in 2007, a project funded by the CALFED Science Program and in collaboration with UC Davis will acquire movement and survival data of salmonids through the Central Valley and San Francisco Estuary. Chinook salmon and steelhead, two salmonid species with different life history strategies, will be followed.
