Estuary News
June 2021

Looking deeper, making tweaks, are a theme in this issue as Estuary managers and scientists scrutinize their options and check their restoration work in light of a drier, hotter, more hungry future. This June, Estuary explores how Bay fish aren’t getting any cleaner despite chemical bans; how Delta fish are still hungry but food may lurk in the shipping channel; and the mechanics of delivering more mud to marshes who need to adapt to sea level rise. Other adaptations to changing conditions covered in this June’s stories include moving the Bay Trail inland, building taller ballparks (for stormwater retention), thinking like a beaver, and clearing the deadwood in watersheds.
