The Department of Fish and Wildlife began delivering Chinook salmon smolt on Wednesday morning, May 10,and again on May 17 and May 24.  The salmon are  kept in the pen 5 days and fed by an automated machine.  

The releases were accomplished Monday May 15, May 22 and May 29. 

The net pen was disassembled early June and stored until the 2018 project.

The delivery of the smolt is accomplished at the end of Johnson Pier, Pillar Point Harbor usually after 10:30 am and the public was invited to watch.  Be sure to bookmark this page for next year's Salmon smolt project.  Please consider donating to help with this important Coastside Fishing Foundation effort.
