Fish catch, invertebrate catch, and water quality data from the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta collected by the Fish Restoration Monitoring Program, 2015-2017. The Fish Restoration Program Monitoring Team is tasked with monitoring fish and food web resources in restored tidal wetland sites. These restored sites are located in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and Suisun Marsh pursuant to requirements in the 2008/2009 Biological Opinions for state and federal water project operations. Data on fish and invertebrate abundance on or near these sites was collected as baseline monitoring data and to determine the most efficient methods for monitoring wetlands.
The Mission of the Department of Fish and Wildlife is to manage California's diverse fish, wildlife, and plant resources, and the habitats upon which they depend, for their ecological values and for their use and enjoyment by the public.
