Pursuant to Fish and Game Code section 1652, the California Department of Fish and
Wildlife has approved the Quiota Fish Passage Enhancement Project submitted by Timothy H. Robinson.
The purpose of the Project is to enhance fish habitat through habitat improvement, barrier removal, and bank stabilization. The Project will mediate the limiting factors of spawning requirements (gravel, riffle-pool complex, resting areas-pools), salmonid rearing requirements (velocity, lack of shelter, pools), and fish passage (emigration and immigration). The species likely to primarily benefit from this Project are Southern California Steelhead (Onchorhynchus mykiss), designated as endangered species pursuant to the federal Endangered Species Act (ESA) (16 U.S.C. § 1531 et seq.) and a candidate species pursuant to the California Endangered Species Act (CESA) (Fish & G. Code, § 2050 et seq.). Other species that will also likely benefit from this Project include: California Red-legged Frog (Rana draytonii) designated as endangered species pursuant to the federal Endangered Species Act (ESA) (16 U.S.C. § 1531 et seq.), Southwestern Pond Turtle (Actinemys pallida), and Two-striped Garter Snake (Thamnophis hammondii). Activities will occur over 0.34 acre.
