Creating Fish Abundance.
40% of the Earth's land surface is agricultural - either row crops or pastures. In California's Central Valley, we've lost 95% of wetlands and floodplain forests. We've effectively conquered the landscape. And the fish have suffered. The Central Valley's wild salmon are endangered, some on the verge of extinction.
But what if we could create fish abundance in this altered agricultural landscape?
That's the question CalTrout's Central Valley Senior Scientist Jacob Katz posed...and the results were amazing.
Now we’re putting that science into action. The Nigiri Project started as a mud muddle experiment in the corner of a rice field and is now shaping water management over tens of thousands of acres of the Central Valley.
The Nigiri Project shows that California's floodplains can work for both fish AND farms. This is how we achieve fish abundance on a managed landscape. These are management solutions for fish, water, and people.
