Topic Habitat: Embeddedness Values for Little SF Garcia 2002
Caption:  This chart shows the results of a 2002 Little South Fork Garcia habitat typing survey with relative embeddedness of spawning gravel taken at pool tail crests. The California Department of Fish and Game (1998) recognizes that embeddedness should be less than 25% for optimal salmonid spawning habitat. While four measurements indicated optimal spawning gravels, seven showed moderate quality, six impaired conditions and 10 very poor conditions. The unsuitable category was added to surveys in 1998 and may be as a result of exposed bedrock or inundation with fine sediment. Data collected by Elizabeth Earthman and Jennifer Presnell of the Americorp Stewards program under the direction of the California Department of Fish and Game.
