The San Francisco Bay-Delta is named in the federal Clean Water Act as one of 28 “estuaries of national significance." For over 20 years, the San Francisco Estuary Partnership has worked together with local communities and federal and state agencies to improve the health of California’s most urbanized estuary.

Striped bass are well known throughout California as a hard-fighting game fish, excellent table fare, and a voracious predator on other fish.

Striped bass were introduced into the San Francisco Estuary in and are often cited as a major cause of native species decline. The striped bass is a favorite sport fish in the San Francisco Estuary (SFE), especially the Delta, because of its large size, sporting qualities, and tasty flesh. Historically, it supported major commercial and sport fisheries but the commercial fishery was shut down long ago and the sport fishery is in long-term decline.

Downloadable. The striped bass population in the San Francisco Bay/Delta estuary has been declining over the past two decades. Though the decline has been studied intensively, the causes are not completely understood. In this report we provide a review of theories about the decline, empirical evidence, and relevant experimental results.

We also suggest what sort of research might help us Cited by: 2. The abundance of young striped bass Morone saxatilis in the Sacramento‐San Joaquin Estuary has suffered an unsteady but persistent decline from population levels that were high in the middle s. The decline was particularly severe in and abundance of young striped bass has been low every subsequent by: The Decline of Striped Bass in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Estuary, California DONALD E.

STEVENS, DAVID W. KOHLHORST, AND LEE W. MILLER California Department of Fish and Game, Bay-Delta Fishery Project Stockton, California D. KELLEY D. Kelley and Associates, Langs Hill Road Newcastle, California Abstract. The striped bass population in the San Francisco Bay/Delta estuary has been declining over the past two decades.

Though the decline has been studied intensively, the causes are not completely. Although some striped bass in the estuary showed EROD activity similar to unhandled hatchery controls, several sites in the estuary showed significantly higher EROD activity that was in the range of beta‐naphthoflavone (BNF)–injected, positive controls.

Overall, EROD activity averaged % higher in estuary fish than in hatchery controls. The striped bass population in the San Francisco Bay/Delta estuary has been declining over the past two decades. Though the decline has been studied intensively, the causes are not completely understood.

In this report we provide a review of theories about the decline, empirical evidence, and relevant experimental results. life history of striped bass in the San Francisco Es-tuary, and to evaluate the likelihood that these in-fluences have contributed significantly to a sub-stantial decline in population abundance (Stevens et al.

The San Francisco Estuary (Fig. 1) is a complex, dynamic system with widely-varying river flow, a. The San Francisco Bay-Delta is named in the federal Clean Water Act as one of 28 “estuaries of national significance." For over 20 years, the San Francisco Estuary Partnership has worked together with local communities and federal and state agencies to improve the health of California’s most urbanized estuary.

Striped bass are an important sport fishery in the San Francisco Estuary, and as such, represent a minor withdrawal of biomass from the estuary. [51] Benthic, or bottom-dwelling, fishes include white sturgeon (Acipenser transmontanus), white catfish (Ameiurus. Ostrach and fishermen called for updated science on the current status of the species since there is no accurate data, regarding the numbers of striped bass in the San Francisco Bay-Delta.

The San Francisco Estuary The San Francisco Estuary consists of three major regions: San Francisco Bay, the most seaward region; Suisun Bay, an intermediate brackish region; and the generally freshwater Sacramento San Joaquin Delta (Fig.

The watershed has wet winters and dry summers. The Delta is the core of a massive system of. Hypomesus transpacificus. The Delta Smelt is a small fish, endemic to California that only occurs in the San Francisco Estuary. The slender-bodied fish typically reaches about mm to a maximum size of about mm (Figures 1, 2 and 3).

Most attention on the decline of fishes has been focussed on striped bass, American shad, and chinook salmon because their declines have taken place over a long period of time, are well documented, and have been closely tied to freshwater outflows (e.g., Stevens and Miller ; Stevens et al.

A preliminary assessment was made in of chlorinated organic compounds in sediments and in livers of striped bass from the San Francisco Bay-Delta Estuary.

Samples of sediment and striped bass livers contain DDT (ethane, 1,1,1-trichloro-2,2-bis These compounds may contribute to the decline of striped bass in San Francisco Bay-Delta Estuary. The San Francisco Bay-Delta region (Fig. 1) was once the foremost fishing center on the Striped bass () in the Bay-Delta; (D) Shad () in the Bay-Delta.
