Fisheries Reintroduction

To meet the goal of returning a self-sustaining Chinook salmon fishery to the San Joaquin River, major planning and permitting initiatives are underway. Several studies to evaluate the current and future needs of fish in the river, including some using small groups of hatchery raised Chinook salmon, are already underway.

Our most comprehensive document to date is the Fisheries Framework completed in 2018. This document outlines the goals and objectives for establishing spring-run and fall-run Chinook salmon populations in the Restoration Area, identifies the necessary habitat that will support naturally reproducing, self-sustaining salmon populations, provides the science behind these planned management actions, and outlines the proposed Adaptive Management process and implementation plan for fishery actions.
