Anadromous Salmonid Habitat Suitability Criteria

03 April 2020

This session will synthesize available information on spawning and rearing habitat, and an analysis of what should be considered in the design process. The focus is the design of habitat restoration and water projects for anadromous salmonids in the Central Valley of California.  The session is primarily focused on the intersection of biology and restoration strategies.
