2 Smelt Found

Mar 07, 2019

2 Delta Smelt have been found in the past six months. It’s pretty good evidence that 27+ years of coming back to take more and more water away from people and food producers to bring about a smelt rebound, has failed. Number of Delta Smelt found in Trawl Surveys: 

September 2018 - 0 

October 2018 - 0 

November 2018 - 0 

December 2018 - 0 

January 2019 - 1 

February 2019 - 1
