Understanding smolt migration dynamics is a critical step in the preservation and conservation of imperiled salmonids in California’s Sacramento River system. Late-fall run Chinook salmon yearling smolts were acoustically tagged and tracked during their outmigration through California’s Sacramento River and San Francisco Estuary during 2007–2009. Migration rates were 14.3 km·day-1 (± 1.3 S.E.) to 23.5 km∙day-1 (± 3.6 S.E.), similar to rates published for other West Coast yearling Chinook salmon… CONTINUE READING
