The Measure

CDFW and the USFWS ensure hatcheries develop, or continue to develop, periodically update, and implement scientifically sound Hatchery and Genetic Management Plans.

Measure Details

Maintaining populations of anadromous fish requires use of hatcheries. To minimize impacts of hatchery fish on genetic integrity and overall fitness of natural salmonid populations, hatcheries develop and update their respective hatchery and genetic management plans. 

Delta Plan Strategy

Protect Native Species and Reduce the Impact of Nonnative Invasive Species

Delta Plan Recommendation

ER R8. Manage Hatcheries to Reduce Risk of Adverse Effects. All public agencies that manage hatcheries potentially affecting listed fish species should develop, or continue to develop, periodically update, and implement scientifically sound Hatchery and Genetic Management Plans (HGMPs) to reduce risks to Central Valley natural-origin and listed species.
