Richardson Bay Herring Spawn

Richardson Bay

A herring spawn occurred inside Richardson Bay this past week, primarily in the mooring field, mid-bay. There was additional spawning in the cove near Dunphy Park to the Southwest. Herring have been staging off the Sausalito shelf for the last couple of weeks so this was not surprising. The CDFW research trawl vessel caught more herring off the shelf at the end of the week which were also in spawning condition. Given the location and spawn condition, herring will likely continue to move in and spawn in Richardson Bay. Stay tuned for more updates.
