Humboldt Bay Tributaries Restoration II

Restoration Stories

A brief tour of the various phases of the freshwater spawning cycle in Humboldt Bay, California: holding in pool between rains, moving onto the spawning beds (redds), digging, spawning, and finally death. Coho salmon are still surviving in Freshwater Creek. A brief time-lapse segment compresses 5 minutes of competitive interactions into just a few seconds. © Thomas Dunklin
