Here’s the alert from California Dept of Fish and Wildlife today:
Herring made another appearance this weekend just in time to ring in the new year. Activity was first reported at Point Richmond at the end of last week. Herring spawn was confirmed to the area south of the harbor channel entrance (rock jetty) on Saturday and today. Spawning is all subtidal on eelgrass (Zostera marina). Numerous species of birds and marine mammals were feeding in the area between Brooks Island and the rock jetty.
