Examine the effect of water depth and distance from shore on estimates of C. shasta, a parasite that negatively impacts Chinook and coho salmon populations in the Klamath River. Project will identify reaches in the Klamath Rvier that are hotspots for C. shasta production by comparing C. shasta DNA levels just upstream and downstream of the suspected hotspot.
