Salmon and Steelhead Monitoring in the Eel River

Slideshow of the Mobile Monitoring Unit - set-up and testing.

 Redwood Empire Trout Unlimited is partnering with our friends with Golden Gate Trout Unlimited on a critical Salmon and Steelhead monitoring project. Our team is assisting the California Department of Fish and Wildlife with the installation of a Didson camera on the mainstem of the Eel River. This will allow steelhead and coho to be accurately counted as they pass the camera, and provide valuable data that will aid in recovery efforts on the Eel.

GGTU and RETU are assisting CDFW with the funding of some of the equipment, and with assembly and support of the site.
