Document Description
California Department of Fish and Wildlife’s (CDFW) Mokelumne River Hatchery (MOK) would deliver 160,000 Central Valley fall-run Chinook Salmon (CV FRCS) smolts to the Project location for direct release (if possible) at the end of Municipal Wharf #2 in Monterey Harbor in 2020 and again in 2021. MBSTP is implementing this project. CDFW would deliver MOK CV FRCS smolts to Monterey Harbor in mid-May of 2020 and 2021. Exact dates and times would be scheduled as the time draws near and are dependent on fish size, growth rates, and environmental conditions in Monterey Harbor and Monterey Bay. All smolts would be transported in a single trip each year, using 2-4 fish transport trucks (dependent upon loading density/fish size). Water in transport trucks would be salted prior to on-loading fish to initiate smoltification and aid in acclimation to the marine environment. MBSTP would provide a ‘tender’ vessel (12-20’ outboard) on the water at the discharge point to assist with the discharge hose and any other operational logistics. The Project’s objective is to enhance the commercial and recreational salmon ocean fishery.
