Document Description
The Sherman Island "Little Baja and Manzo Ranch" Fish Release Sites Project are being designed and constructed to comply with the National Marine and Fisheries Services' (NMFS) Biological Opinion (BiOp) on the Long-term Operations of the Central Valley Project and State Water Project (2009) and the Department of Fish and Wildlife's (CDFW) Longfin Smelt Incidental Take Permit (ITP) for the California State Water Project Delta Facilities and Operations (2009). The purpose of the project is to build new facilities to release fish that have been salvaged from the State's John E. Skinner Delta Fish Protective Facility and the federal Tracy Fish Salvage Facility back into the Delta. The Department of Water Resources (DWR) implemented this project in response to the Suite IV.4 Actions contained in the Reasonable and Prudent Alternative (RPA) of the BiOp governing the operation of the Delta facilities of the State Water Project. Specifically, the RPA requires DWR to comply with Action IV.43 (3) of the BiOp which concerns the survival rates of salvaged fish. The overall goal of the project is to reduce predation of salvaged fish at the fish release sites and increase salvaged fish survival rates.
