Quick Update Week of February 9, 2015

Resting birds after the spawn at Point Richmond (CDFW)

Resting birds after the spawn at Point Richmond (CDFW)

Update:
Since the last update it has been relatively quiet around the bay. As reported previously there was a significant spawn at Point Richmond from Ferry Point to Point San Pablo. Heaviest spawning occurred near the old ferry terminal through the first weekend of February. There was also a smaller event on the Marin shoreline, mostly around Keil Cove and Belvedere Cove.
No fishing activity has been reported or observed. The CDFW research vessel did however encounter a herring school in the vicinity of Paradise Cove this week. Herring appear to be staging in this area so a new spawn event could be on the horizon.
