The Science Informing Salmonid Reintroductions

03 April 2020

Session Coordinator: 
Carlos Garza, NOAA Fisheries, Southwest Fisheries Science Center

This session will bring together a variety of fields of expertise that are involved in efforts to reintroduce salmon and steelhead to their historic freshwater habitats. The talks will discuss the state of knowledge in reintroduction science and cover projects throughout the state (and further afield) that are utilizing a variety of techniques, including dam removal, passage facilities and trap & haul, and in various stages of completion, from successfully completed to early conceptual planning.
