Potential interactions between urban runoff and decline of pelagic fishes

Principal Investigators:

Daniel Schlenk

Urban runoff has been identified as one of many potential drivers of the decline of pelagic fishes in the upper San Francisco Estuary. Participants in this working group will use an ecological risk-assessment approach to address potential chemical influences on delta smelt, longfin smelt, threadfin shad, and striped bass in urban environments. Housing and transportation infrastructure drains into spawning and nursery areas for these species. Three of the species spawn during months in which rain typically falls, leading to substantial urban storm... more
