Rescuing Coho Salmon from Redwood Creek

Dec 12, 2014

This summer fisheries biologists took drastic steps: rescuing the remaining juvenile Coho salmon from Redwood Creek in Muir Woods. These roughly 100 fish are now being raised at Warm Springs Dam fish hatchery, at Lake Sonoma, waiting to grow and, one day, return to the wild. 

This program is similar in nature to the Russian River Coho salmon captive broodstock program, a multi-agency effort coordinated out of Warm Springs Dam.
