CDFW's Matt Johnson explains McCloud River salmon incubator

Matt Johnson, senior environmental scientist for the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW), explains the incubation system on the McCloud River where winter-run Chinook salmon eggs are held while they mature before being released into the river. This system combines components of a remote-site incubator with a system of trays from CDFW’s Mount Shasta Fish Hatchery to ensure mud from the river won't suffocate the eggs.
