The flooding levels of the fields was beginning to subside and expected to become accessible for work by the middle of following week as the bypass continues to slowly drain. The UCD Team was able to begin some initial seining activity by the end of this week. The Team also deployed lab-reared fish into cages on a support field outside of the bypass (known as the “dry-side”) field this week. This dry-side field is used largely to grow a set of fish for our later JSATS telemetry work and to add some “insurance” to the JSATS element of the program in the event later bypass flooding might occur and interfere with the optimum study conditions than just a single flood/drain scenario would provide. The UCD Team also made plans to resume more PIT-tagging of lab-reared fish the following week and perform pathology testing in advance of the planned release of fish into the project field in the subsequent week(s).
