Cal Maritime partnered with California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) to release 1 million Chinook salmon into San Pablo Bay from Cal Maritime's campus. It was the first release of Chinook salmon from this location in almost four decades!

This fall, Cal Maritime will offer a course in Fisheries Oceanography and will engage with state and federal scientists who will share their work with our students through classroom visits and tours of fisheries science facilities. 

“At Cal Maritime, we offer an exciting array of degree programs that engage the largest estuary on the West Coast," said Interim President Michael Dumont. "This project lends perfectly to our Oceanography curriculum and our upcoming fisheries course. We are honored to be able to support the work of the California Department of Fish and Wildlife through this partnership.”


Established in 1929, California State University Maritime Academy is the only degree-granting maritime academy on the West Coast. Located in Vallejo, California, the campus offers undergraduate degrees that prepare students for careers in engineering, transportation, international relations, business, and global logistics. Cal Maritime also offers a master’s degree in Transportation and Engineering Management, as well as a number of extended learning programs and courses.
