Marin salmon monitors get new tracking tool

November 20, 2020

Using $23,000 obtained with help from Trout Unlimited’s Golden Gate Chapter, the Marin Agricultural Land Trust and Marin County, the water district purchased an upgraded antenna that addresses past issues and provide researchers better data on which fish are surviving.

Researchers are hoping for an average number of spawners to return this year based on a large number of young salmon, or smolts, that entered the ocean in the spring of 2019.
