When the CZU fire went through the Big Creek watershed it severely damaged the Kingfisher Flat Genetic Conservation Hatchery (KFH), which is owned and operated by a local non-profit group the Monterey Bay Salmon, and Trout Project. This hatchery is where Scott Creek Coho Salmon are spawned and reared. Due to the damage at KFH it was decided to evacuate all the remaining Coho Salmon at KFH to other hatcheries. This talk will discuss the successes, issues, and failures these fish encountered after being transferred to the Fisheries Ecology Division Laboratory at Santa Cruz.
