Point Molate Herring Spawn Report, San Francisco Bay

CDFW staff sampled a herring spawn near Point Molate yesterday.

Weekend reports indicated an increase in bird activity around the area and a check of the eelgrass bed yielded a few herring eggs. Small numbers of birds remained, but based on sampling of the subtidal areas the spawn was relatively small in size.
