PANEL DISCUSSION: Making the Delta a Better Place for Native Fishes

Dr. Peter Moyle, Lead Scientist Dr. John Callaway, and OC Coastkeeper’s Garry Brown discuss recent white paper

In March of 2018, the UC Davis Center for Watershed Sciences on behalf of Orange County Coastkeeper released an innovative report titled, Making the Delta a Better Place for Native Fish, which focused on ecosystem-wide restoration and reconciliation ecology.  The paper recommends 17 actions which can be taken to improve conditions for fish, including some that can be implemented immediately and others that will take longer. The science-driven fish-oriented report provides a fresh and realistic perspective to promote and expedite the restoration of native fish species in the Delta.

The report was a topic of a panel discussion at the spring conference of the Association of California Water Agencies.
