The Salmon Enhancement Program has started up at Moss Landing. This site has some benefits over the Santa Cruz Harbor. The Moss Landing Harbor governance fully supports our intention to acclimate 240,000 Chinook smolts annually. The rich upwelling waters of the Monterey Canyon are only a few hundred yards away, thus increasing the chances of good feeding for the young Chinook almost immediately after release. We will miss operating out of Santa Cruz, but hope to re-start there once a second net-pen can be procured by MBSTP.
