Herring for the Holidays: Richardson Bay, Point Richmond Herring Spawn Report, San Francisco Bay

CDFW staff surveyed two separate spawns today, one in Richardson Bay and another near Point Richmond.

The Richardson Bay spawn is primarily centered in the anchorage east of Schoonmaker Point. The Point Richmond spawn is located south of the harbor entrance channel outside the rock jetty. This event had a significant amount of marine mammal and bird activity during the early afternoon today. Staff will continue to monitor both spawn locations into next week. Happy Holidays!
