April-August 2007 Klamath Juvenile Salmonid Health Monitoring Report

Fish and Wildlife, posted to KBC 9/26/08

Note, the narrative says sampling occurred from Iron Gate to the Estuary, but sampling starts at the Shasta River, not Iron Gate. Indications are a low incidence immediately below Iron Gate

The California Nevada Fish Health Center has released a final report on disease incidence rates in juvenile salmonids in the mainstem Klamath River for the 2007 outmigrant season.

The report can be downloaded as a pdf file from the Cal/Nev Fish Heath Center website at the link below, and will be posted on the Arcata website in the near future.
