CFFU and Conservation
To promote and support the CFFU goals of conservation, preservation and enhancement of California’s fisheries, aquatic resources and the watersheds that sustain them.
Useful Conservation Websites
As Chris Austin (a.k.a. Maven) states….."I am a California water news junkie". This website on California water issues features both original news and current information from a variety of internet resources. Probably the best all round website for water/fisheries conservation issues.
Fish Bio-Fisheries Consultants
As a fish biologist/toxicologist, I love this website. It is a fisheries/environmental consulting company dedicated to advancing research, monitoring and conservation of fish world-wide. This is a great website, if you want a bit more technical information about fish biology.
Restore the Delta
If you want to keep abreast of anything and everything affecting the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, this is the website. The mission of this organization is….”to save the S.F. Bay-Delta estuary for our children and future generations”.
California Water Blog
Another excellent science-based website providing well-researched information on California’s “most pressing water resource management problems”. The website is supported by U.C. Davis’ Center for Watershed Sciences and its director, Dr. Jay Lund.
