Mortality Reporting

CDFW collects and tracks fish and wildlife mortality and disease information to improve our ability to monitor disease outbreaks and detect emerging health threats. Your report could:

  • Help us better understand these phenomena
  • Lead to more effective prevention and control
  • Help us detect emerging diseases affecting fish and wildlife
  • Help us monitor the health of fish and wildlife in California

If you notice dead fish and wildlife, DO NOT TOUCH OR HANDLE THEM; simply let us know by providing the following information.
