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.
