Estuary News
September 2020

This issue of ESTUARY News has a fishy focus, summarizing 12 years of research on the fish-friendly Yolo Bypass, and profiling one man who has spent a lifetime helping fish around dams. Reporters take you out on the Delta to survey fish with cameras not nets, and into the offshore ocean to troll for salmon from a kayak. This issue also covers the latest research on COVID in wastewater, emerging contaminants in stormwater, harmful algal blooms in the Delta, a bold landscape redesign proposal for Franks Tract, as well as concerns about the region’s aging fleet research vessels.  Three stories and a new podcast explore shifts in how the region is distributing environmental dollars and opportunities with more of an eye on equity and racism.
