Project Description:

Our project focuses on 2 priority fish improvement needs in the Feather River, Whirling Disease and habitat connectivity. Whirling Disease is addressed by forming a public-private task group to develop a plan to control its spread; and by collecting water quality samples to better describe current distribution of the disease. First steps to improve habitat connectivity would be taken by gathering site specific information on fish passage needs at road crossings of perennial streams in priority subwatersheds. Surveys will lead to design and implementation of actions to restore fish passage.
