Document Description
The Monterey Bay Salmon and Trout Project is a membership-based nonprofit 501c3 organization dedicated to the conservation and recovery of native salmon and trout populations of the Monterey Bay region. MBSTP proposes to acclimate hatchery-raised Central Valley fall-run Chinook Salmon (CV FR) in a temporary net pen within Santa Cruz Harbor in Santa Cruz, CA in the spring of 2019 and 2020. On the same day of delivery, the net pen would be towed out of the harbor and the fish released into Monterey Bay. The project's objective is to enhance Central California's commercial and recreational salmon fishery. Released smolts will feed and grow along the coast and be available for harvest as adults in one to three years.
