Calaveras River Habitat Conservation Plan

calaveras-habitat-planFISHBIO personnel have spent several years developing a Habitat Conservation Plan for steelhead and Chinook salmon in the Calaveras River. Such a plan describes how proposed actions, like water diversions for agricultural, industrial, and domestic use, will minimize or offset any incidental take of threatened or endangered species. The Calaveras River Habitat Conservation Plan describes the habitat types and environmental conditions that steelhead and Chinook require at each stage of their life cycle, the status of each species in the Calaveras River basin, and the actions that regional water districts will implement to protect and manage these species.
