Natalie Houghton, an environmental specialist with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District, uses a special magnet to activate acoustic fish tags prior to them being surgically implanted into 250 steelhead trout and late-fall Chinook salmon juveniles March 25, 2013, at the Coleman National Fish Hatchery in Anderson, Calif. The data obtained over a 75-mile stretch of the Sacramento River will help researchers better evaluate habitat restoration work under the Sacramento River Bank Protection Project, a joint flood risk reduction effort between the district and the state's California Central Valley Flood Protection Board to repair river bank erosion along the Sacramento River and its tributaries.
