Toggle Image Problems of the Lower San Joaquin River Influencing the 1963 Salmon Run 01/15/1964 (PDF, 2.45 MB)
Description: Studies conducted by the Delta Fish and Wildlife Protection Study defined a problem relating to the upstream migration of adult salmon caused by flow reversal and pollution in the lower San Joaquin River area. Further studies are underway to solve this problem in the future. These studies indicated that during 1961 and 1962 flow reversal and pollution from cannery waste discharges did exist in the San Joaquin River during the September-October period when adult salmon are normally migrating. The salmon runs in all of the tributaries of the San Joaquin River were drastically reduced for each of these two years, decreasing from approximately 50,000 fish to under 3,000. Water development projects, which are perhaps the principal reasons for past declines, may well become the means for restoration of the salmon.
