Salmonid Conservation

BML has had a long history of salmonid research, with a major project on enhancing the endangered winter-run Chinook salmon in the 1990s, followed by research on fish health in local endangered Coho salmon in the 2000s. The unique salmonid facility at UCD has large tanks with seawater and freshwater sources for holding broodstock under environmental conditions, a hatchery, and a grow-out facility with fish pathogen capabilities.
