KNIGHT’S FERRY, Calif. (Nov. 16, 2010) – An underwater camera (left) captures images of a male salmon hovering around his nest during the second annual Stanislaus River Salmon Festival hosted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District’s Stanislaus River Parks here Nov. 14. Chinook salmon and steelhead trout share the Stanislaus River with 25 other game fish. Male salmon typically remain near their nest until the young are born, protecting them from other predators. According to J.D. Wikert, habitat restoration coordinator for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and one of the festival coordinators, more than 11,000 Chinook salmon returned to their spawning ground on the river this year’s fall run. An estimated 3,000 people attended the free, family-friendly event, which was aimed at educating young people on the protection efforts for salmon and its habitat.
