Science Article on Endangered Central Coast Coho

Science Magazine reported on the plight of the endangered central California coast coho salmon and the increasing probability of extinction due to three consecutive years of exceedingly low returns. SWFSC Fisheries Ecology Division scientists Brian Spence and Carlos Garza were interviewed for the story, which also highlighted the innovative work by Center scientists on genetic broodstock management and adult releases that are part of the two captive broodstock programs for California coho salmon that have been established in the last decade by multi-agency collaborative groups.
