Steelhead Monitoring Program

Santa Cruz County's Juvenile Steelhead & Stream Habitat (JSSH) Monitoring Program is a partnership between the County of Santa Cruz and local water agencies. The annual program measures the density of juvenile steelhead across more than 40 sites throughout the San Lorenzo, Soquel, Aptos, and Pajaro watersheds. The program also assesses habitat conditions for steelhead and coho salmon and helps inform conservation priorities throughout the County.
