GVL awarded grant to develop reintroduction plan for Delta Smelt

GVL members Andrea Schreier, Mandi Finger, and Daphne Gille (in collaboration with Cramer Fish Sciences) were awarded a grant by California Department of Water Resources to bring stakeholders to the table to develop a reintroduction plan for Delta Smelt. The is the first step in coming to terms with the fact that we may need to use hatchery fish to supplement/reinforce the wild population while restoration projects are underway.
