THE CURRENT: Reintroduction of winter-run chinook salmon to Battle Creek; Can fish eat their way out of climate change?; Restoring the Mad River Estuary; and more …

Autumn is here and so is the Fall 2020 Issue of The Current, CalTrout’s online magazine.

Our featured story dives into our project to support the Reintroduction of Sacramento Winter-run Chinook Salmon to the Battle Creek Watershed. The Battle Creek watershed presents one of the most exciting restoration opportunities for salmon diversity in CA.

Also in this issue:

    • Restoring and Reconnecting the Mad River Estuary – The rivers and streams of the North Coast provide potential refuge for estuary dependent species such as coho, steelhead, and Chinook.
    • Can Fish Eat Their Way Out of Climate Change? – Enhancing coldwater habitat is likely the single best strategy to mitigate the effects of climate change. Dr. Rob Lusardi shares his research to find out if food rich habitats can have a similar effect.
    • Spot Check: Fall River – The Gem of California’s Natural Springs – One of the lesser-known but important components of the water system is California’s network of underground aquifers and springs.
    • Providing Expertise on Advisory Committees – Our Regional Directors and Senior Scientists are appointed to and actively participate in the technical advisory committees of resource agencies and major environmental initiatives.
