San Francisco Estuary Report

CEMAR has prepared a report entitled:

San Francisco Estuary Watersheds Evaluation: Identifying Promising Locations for Steelhead Restoration in Tributaries of the San Francisco Estuary

In consultation with staff from the Coastal Conservancy, the Center for Ecosystem Management and Restoration (CEMAR) has developed an intuitive, information-based approach to identifying the critical steelhead reesources in the region. Our approach involves "screening" Bay Area watersheds using five criteria to identify the most important areas in which to focus restoration efforts. This report seeks to direct attention to a set of projects, policies and future investigations we consider essential elements of a regional restoration strategy.

This report assembles for the first time all readily available information regarding steelhead habitat in tributaries of the San Francisco Estuary. Watersheds are screened for "anchor watershed" status, indicating their relative importance in restoring the regional steelhead population. Also, we evaluated the tributaries of the anchor watershed to produce a list of essential streams in which promising restoration opportunities are identified. The report includes text and maps. The full text of the report can be downloaded in PDF format here: San Francisco Estuary Watersheds Evaluation (1.5 MB).
