Captive Broodstock Symposium and Warm Springs Hatchery Tour

March 12, 2015

Workshop Coordinator: 
Erick Sturm, National Marine Fisheries Service, Southwest Fisheries Science Center

This workshop covered a range of topics required to run a captive broodstock program regardless of what species is being cultured including state and federal regulations and permitting processes of captive broodstock programs, genetic issues of rearing and spawning multiple generations in captivity, funding issues, using captive broodstock progeny for research to help restore the species, monitoring all life stages of the broodstock progeny once released to the wild, and issues that arise in normal day to day operations.  Presentations were followed by a panel discussion and tour of the Warm Springs Coho Salmon Captive Broodstock hatchery on Lake Sonoma.
