GGSA Backs Pilot Salmon Egg Drought Project

On December 4 history was made in California when the California Dept. of Fish and Wildlife injected fertilized salmon eggs into the Feather River as part of a pilot project.  The egg injection came two years after GGSA asked the state to inject eggs to mitigate for the devastating effects of drought on salmon.  When drought drives river temperatures too high to hatch salmon eggs, they can be taken and kept in chilled hatchery settings until river conditions cool, at which point they can be injected into river gravels and start life as a wild fish.
