Document Description
California Department of Fish and Wildlife’s (CDFW) Mokelumne River Hatchery (MOK) would deliver 750,000 Central Valley fall-run Chinook Salmon (CV FRCS) smolts to the Project location for acclimation and subsequent release in Pillar Point Harbor or nearby open ocean in 2020. Trucks would be loaded, and fish transported according to MOK established standard operating procedures for transportation of salmon. Water in the trucks would be salted prior to adding fish at the hatchery. CDFW would deliver MOK CV FRCS smolts to Pillar Point Harbor in spring of 2020. Exact dates and times would be scheduled as the time draws near and are dependent on fish size, growth rates, and environmental conditions in Pillar Point Harbor. Smolts would be transported in small batch increments on a weekly basis for 5-day acclimation in the pen followed by ocean release until all 750,000 smolts are released. CFC is implementing this project. CFC would provide all necessary boats for towing and servicing pen and fish as well as any other operational logistics. The Project’s objective is to enhance the commercial and recreational salmon ocean fishery.
