The purpose of this report is to document the natural resources of the Eel River Delta, Humboldt County; to outline and evaluate the problems and conflicts of use that affect those resources; and, to recommend measures that will protect and enhance the Delta and its environs. The Eel River Delta is an important segment of the coastal wetlands of California. Over two-thirds of the State's original bays, estuaries, lagoons and coastal marshes has already been lost to development and reclamation. Because of the importance of coastal wetland ecosystems to fish and wildlife, the Department has initiated a high priority, statewide inventory of the remaining wetland areas. This publication is an integral part of that program and one of a "Coastal Wetland Series" that includes reports on Upper Newport Bay, Orange County; Goleta Slough, Santa Barbara County; Bolinas Lagoon, Marin County; Elkhorn Slough, Monterey County; San Diego Bay, San Diego County; Humboldt Bay, Humboldt County; Los Penasquitos Lagoon, San Diego County; and Morro Bay, San Luis Obispo County.
