This report outlines details from the annual Regional Monitoring Program for Water Quality in the San Francisco Estuary (RMP) sediment cruise, conducted August 14 – 21, 2018. The Regional Monitoring Program conducts routine monitoring of water, sediment and biological tissue.

Bird egg monitoring (cormorant and terns) is conducted triennially, while sport fish are monitored on a five-year rotation.
