Damon Goodman, a fish biologist with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, studies where pacific lampreys live, including San Luis Obispo Creek. As adults, the eel-like fish migrate from the Pacific Ocean to fresh water to spawn.
Any day now, eel-like parasites with sucker mouths will wiggle up San Luis Obispo Creek and build underwater nests in the creek bed to spawn.
Don’t worry, they won’t attack. They will, however, be food for other wildlife and improve the health and water quality of the creek, where the Regional Water Quality Board said elevated levels of fecal coliform is a problem.
These ancient, jaw-less fish, which look like something out of a bad horror movie, are called Pacific lampreys.
