CDFW Biologists Moving Endangered Steelhead Out Of Low Water In Santa Barbara Creek

From Santa Barbara TV station KEYT, biologists are working in Gaviota Creek near Goleta to trap endangered steelhead and get the endangered sea-run trout into deeper water. Here’s more from KEYT’s Tracy Lehr:

Trout trapping is taking place in an undisclosed portion of Gaviota Creek in Goleta where the water is drying up.

There are more than a dozen barriers that restrict the movement of the fish when they get trapped below them.

Scientists said they are an endangered due to human interference in their habitats.
