Big Creek, Little Steelhead

 

Year old Steelhead (smolts) were seen during Moss Landing’s Scientific Diving class, in August, at Big Creek Reserve.  These fish are anadromous, meaning they are born in freshwater and then spend most of their lives at sea before returning to the freshwater to breed.  They get to experience both fresh and saltwater worlds!
