DWR Water Wednesday -- Navigating the Maze: Salmon in the Delta

Join DWR Senior Scientist, Dr. Brett Harvey, for a live presentation and chat as he describes the journey taken by juvenile salmon through the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta.

Before the salmon born in California’s Central Valley can get to the ocean, they must first make it through the San Francisco Upper Estuary, a maze of channels and sloughs that includes the Delta. Along the way, they need good habitat - places where they can find food without becoming food themselves. Only a small percentage of juvenile salmon survive this part of the journey.

Dr. Harvey will describe this journey, and some of the things we are doing to help more juvenile salmon make it from their birth rivers to the ocean.
