Purpose/Objective
This element is used to estimate and evaluate the losses of eggs and larval fish (<20mm) to entrainment by the North Bay Aqueduct (NBA) intake in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. It is also used to monitor the abundance and distribution of larval delta smelt in Barker and Lindsey sloughs which are thought to be used as spawning areas. The presence of delta smelt larvae in Barker slough is a criteria for restrictions on NBA pumping. 

Source of Data: 

NBA is a subset of Striped Bass Egg and Larva Survey which is used to monitor the abundance and distribution of larval species of concern. Click on this link to find out more about the program element, to read the Metadata, Format, and Reference files, or to download data.
