Abstract

In this paper we develop a model to simulate the impacts of changes in freshwater flows into and out of the San Francisco Bay/Delta on the California Central Valley salmon fishery. The model also describes interactions among these water flow controls, hatchery operations, and harvest regulation. Traditionally, the management of California's freshwater resources and anadromous fisheries has been undertaken separately, in the literature and in practice. We demonstrate the potential gains from a coordinated management approach.
