An anadromous fish spawns in freshwater, migrates to the ocean to mature, then returns to freshwater to spawn and complete its lifecycle.
In California, anadromous fish include salmon, steelhead, sturgeon, striped bass, American shad, stickleback and Pacific Lamprey.
The SHARE Program is designed to improve public access to private or landlocked public land. Participating landowners will be compensated with monetary payment and liability protection for providing access to or through their land for recreational use and enjoyment of wildlife. SHARE is funded with SHARE Access Permit Application fees.
Recreational users can contribute to the success of the SHARE Program by obeying all CDFW regulations, as well as demonstrating courteous, legal, and ethical behavior.
